Podcasting by Christine

A Podcast is an audio file on the Web that can be easily downloaded and listened to. Teachers and teacher-librarians can listen to podcasts for professional development, or they can find premade podcasts for their students to listen to. It is also easy to create your own podcasts for students: record a story, an assignment explanation or even a lecture or informational podcast and assign it for homework! Students can also create podcasts for assignments: book talks for a book report, plays and skits for Social Studies or an opinion piece or news report. Learn where to look for and find podcasts, as well as how to create and post. Handouts will be provided.
