10 Podcasting Projects Every Teacher Should Try
If orange is the new black, podcasting is the new oral report. And now that teachers have easy access to tools like Garage Band and iPods that make recording a breeze, podcasting is quickly becoming the latest creative mode of learning and presenting in schools. Here are ten ideas to try in your classroom today. Current Event Newscasts: Practice non-fiction reading skills by having your students do weekly or monthly podcasts on an interesting current event. Reading Radio: Have your students make short radio broadcasts summarizing the books they are reading. Question for you: Do you use podcasts in the classroom?

Podcasting Students and teachers from all over the world are learning from audio and video programs on desktop computers, laptops, tablets, netbooks, and other devices. Hundreds of free educational programs are available online. With a couple clicks, you can be learning about grammar, science, history, algebra...just about anything! A podcast typically has a web feed (known as RSS) that allows it to be cataloged in various podcasting directories like iTunes. When a podcast has a web feed, software and apps can subscribe to it. That means that new episodes are automatically downloaded. In most classrooms the teacher will find podcast episodes for students to listen to or watch. Creating podcasts has many educational benefits. Below are a collection of links that can be helpful when it comes to podcasting in schools.

Beyond The Book Report - Gifted Lesson Plans The following is a guest post written by Erika Saunders. Visit her blog or follow her on Twitter @rozelialives. Interested in writing a guest post? Send me an email at! I’d love to set something up! I have never been a fan of the “Book Report”, the traditional listing of characters, settings, and plots. So, when the powers-that-be requested that our students write book reports, I just had to jump in – or rather, I was volunteered. Then, something wonderful happened. So, here is the list I created as my mind delved deeper and deeper – some I’ve gotten from some really creative teachers – thanks Ian! The beauty is that there really are no limits.

Anticipation mounts while waiting to be transported into a storytelling experience. This unit should tap into that excitement, capture the students’ attention and let them embark on a journey of discovery and learning. Students will be learning about and combining at least four different but related disciplines such as literature, filmmaking, history, and art illustration. Students will watch demonstrations of different art techniques and processes involving various art materials and then they will practice using them. As a high school art teacher in Delaware, I am designing this unit to be taught in my two Advanced Drawing classes. Many school districts have embraced the model of UbD or Understanding by Design/Arts Learning by Design. Objectives Students will understand the purposes for the existence of movie posters and trailers.
