(W2) PODCASTING ... in teaching and learning

Mon 7th Sept. 1:45-5:00
PODCASTING ... in teaching and learning
Podcasts are really very simple (once you have been shown) ... they are audio (sometimes video) recordings that are put on the internet (subscribed to) and have the potential to be brilliant resources to use with students and by students of all ages.
We will go through the whole process of making an audio recording, editing and then putting the file on a website so it can be listened to (and subscribed to) by anyone in the world with an internet connection.
Subscribing to a Podcast is done using an RSS aggregator ... we will only have time to cover these briefly, if you need to know more about RSS then you are advised to attend one of the other
workshops that covers this in more detail. RSS also has the capability of saving teachers a large amount of time if they need to check multiple student podcasts, blogs wikis or websites.

If you have time before the workshop then have a listen to some of the Podcasts we made in earlier workshops in Singapore ... they really are fun to listen to
