Blog Assignment 5
Eagle Nest Radio
I loved this! This was an amazing podcast. I ended up learning a lot about Rome in this short podcast! These third graders did an awesome job with their podcast. This showed how podcasts can be used as study tools for kids. By making podcasts students are forced to learn material in order to make their presentations and they also become more computer savvy.
The Education Podcast Network
I like the idea of The Education Podcast Network. It's goal is to bring all the podcast programming into one place. This will simplify things and be especially helpful to teachers who are looking for materials that they can teach with. They will also gain a better understanding about teaching in the 21st century. I think this will benefit a wide range of teachers from every subject and grade level.
Her post was especially helpful because she was very thorough. She first explained what a podcast was. She then continued to include helpful hints of how to go about creating your own podcast. The time scheduling was very helpful and easy to understand. This is a very useful tool. It gave me a way better understanding of what a podcast is and how it can be used.
