Check out this brief example of a podcast created by a colleague of mine, Rudy Vidal at Sky Harbour! Podcasts are just one of the technology tools of web 2.0 that teachers can use to enrich instruction. Students do NOT need an iPod to listen to the podcast. Podcasts may be listened to directly from the internet or downloaded to a playing device like an iPod or mp3 player and are basically an oral recording of an online post or message.
Don’t miss the podcast and view the resources available at “Fabulous Podcast Resources” link (to the left of this article) for more information about podcasting from one of the leading educational bloggers, Miguel Guhlin. His blog is full of information, resources and strategies for implementing many of the web 2.0 tools.
