The feedback I’ve
received from sharing the podcast guide online has been really good.
Thanks to Adam Maxwell a member of the Casting the Net LearnScope
Project EdNA Group the guide includes the essential information about
the legal requirements for teachers in regards to disadvantaged people.
I’ve been listening to quite a few of the podcasts from the Education Podcast Network and told David Warlick about the guide. People involved in education should check out his
wiki, it covers podcasting, blogs, wiki’s and a lot more about digital technology for education. He added the guide to his list of guides for producing podcasts and a nice thank you.
Also John Pearce blogged about the guide and you see some of his work with grade 3-4’s at the Middle J wiki.
Some teachers have written thank you emails and commented about the guide being concise, well laid out and easy to follow, one wrote that the guide
opened their eyes and another wrote that I must be reading their mind.
I put together a guide called
Podcasting for windows Users.
I’m going to store my educational documents at something I’ve called the
Libre Learning Object Repository.
A general description of a podcast is that it’s a radio show on the
internet and what’s special is how it’s delivered to the user. An Ipod
My main motivation was that podcasting is being used in education quite a bit and I wasn’t satisfied with any of the guides I found online. All the software used in my guide is free/Libre and open source and gives all teachers/users an easy way to use this technology.
Podcasting is a bit like independent radio and anyone can do it. If
you have a special interest, it’s likely that someone is podcasting
about it, it’s just a matter of subscribing to the shows that you want
to listen to, or create your own. If you prefer the mainstream, there’s
also podcasts like the JJJ podcast etc. There’s some interesting formats like multiple hosts recording an
interview with someone on the other side of the world and all kinds of
creative people that feel they have something other people should hear.
There’s also the business podcasts that are a bit like a monthly
newsletter announcing their latest products with their jingles and
Its well worth checking out. I hope you find the guide useful.
Take care of yourselves….. and each other.
