Free Podcast Hosting, Best Podcast App | Podbean Teaching With Podcasts Home › Professional Development › Strategy Guides Strategy Guide Podcasts are serial recordings, posted regularly online. Robert Rozema describes a podcast as "a blog in audio form" (31). Basically, producing podcasts is the technology-based equivalent of oral storytelling. Podcasts can be used for any purpose a text might serve-they can tell fictional stories, share and comment on recent events, inform listeners about a topic, and persuade listeners to take an action or adopt a stance. Students can produce podcasts that fit any genre, including audio diary entries, analytical commentary on readings or current events, informational recordings that explain concepts, and persuasive and argumentative statements. Review your district's appropriate use policies to determine the requirements for a podcasting site that students can use.

Wikispaces Creating Podcasts with Your Students Preproduction Before students even think of stepping up to the microphone, much planning must be done. In fact, I've found in creating Radio WillowWeb that preproduction takes over three-quarters of the time to produce a podcast. The podcast will need a name. In preproduction, you must also decide upon the format for the podcast. Sample ideas and uses for a podcast: Weekly classroom news broadcast Document a field trip Record a class discussion Share book reviews Conduct interviews Review curricular content Segment Planning Booklet: Download the planning sheets used for Radio WillowWeb. When planning, consider the length of your podcast. If your podcast is involving an entire classroom of students, the teacher should find ways to involve everyone in preproduction. It's really helpful for students to practice what they are going to say out loud to others. Apple has lesson plans for using iPods in classrooms.

Adventskalender 2013 - Thinglink Eftersom det börjar närma sig jul så börjar tankarna kring den digitala adventskalendern dyka upp, både i mitt huvud och diskussioner i FB-grupper. I år har jag tänkt att använda mig av online-sidan Thinglink I Thinglink kan man skapa interaktiva bilder genom att ladda upp en bild och sen lägga dit olika taggar på den med hänvisningar till olika webbsidor. T ex kan man länka till olika Youtubeklipp, en googlesite med en uppgift, bilder eller musik, så länge det finns en webblänk så fungerar det. Hur gör man då? Man går in på och skapar där ett gratiskonto. Nu är det dags att välja foto. Har du fixat en bild du gillar? Först väljer du högst upp vad din bild ska heta, det gör du i rutan över bilden. Nu är det dags att lägga till taggar, det gör du genom att klicka på bilden där du vill att taggen ska ligga. Då får du upp en ruta där du lägger länken till det som du vill att den ska visa, t ex Youtubevideor, bilder, texter eller musik. Eller varför inte en exitticket på veckan?
