Tim Wilson, a technology integration specialist from Minnesota, hosted a session at NECC last year (NECC will be in San Antonio June 2008). The audience put together a list of classroom uses for podcasting. Tim blogged about it and offers this list:
Collect field notes during a science field trip
Living museum, researching characters
Creating audio guides for local museums
Early language learners, (rhyming, etc.)
Language learners recording assessments
Discovery Education videos
Weekly classroom news
Summaries of school events
Broadcast school sporting events
Capturing oral histories (family history)
Podcast vocab words and spelling lists
Flashcard practice with iFlash
Since podcasting is new to many in our school district, I thought I would offer this list up and see if anyone was interested in trying it out. If you are, give me a call. We have the equipment available for our staff to try these things out.
Any other ways to use podcasting that you can think of?
