This podcast outlines my journey in reinventing my primary classroom to be ICT friendly. We look at effective teaching and learning and how this is enhanced by the use of ICT.
Creating a podcast with Kid Pix
In this podcast I demonstrate how to use Kid Pix to make a podcast. This podcast itself is created within Kid Pix. The version I have used to make this is Kid Pix Deluxe 3x for Mac, but you can do the same using the windows version of Kid Pix. One difference may be when you export your finished podcast, on a PC you may need to export it as a quick time file.
Oral language - Podcasting Literature Review
This year I have been researching the question "In what ways does podcasting enhance oral literacies?" I am using this podcast to present the information as I am finding it. This is the second part in this series. This podcast is the literature review I wrote looking for intersections between the literature on oral language and that on podcasting. It is a difficult task recording a literature review and doing the quotes justice. The finished written report will be available from my Efellow blogsite: http://www.efellows.org.nz/?q=blog/27 in January 2008. Please download a copy for the reference list to this literature review.
Introduction to the research
This year I have been fortunate to be released from the classroom to research the benefits of using podcasting to enhance oral literacies in the classroom. I have finally finished gathering all my data and am starting to pull all the pieces together. As a way to disseminate my findings, I am podcasting my finished report on this site. This is the introductory chapter outlining my posit ion and the reason for the project. More of the project will be podcast over the coming months.
What is this thing called podcasting?
This term I have been working with a group of students to gather data for my research project on podcasting. I have made a mash up of the final podcasts these students made for me and posted it here for you. The assignment I gave the students was 'tell the world what this podcasting thing is, and why you like doing it'. Please head over to their podcast page and leave them a comment on how well they have done at http://www.room5.podomatic.com.
I have finished gathering data for my project now and the next term will be spent interpretting my findings. I will post further podcasts as I do.
Scripted versus Live
In the forums at the Time 4 Online NZ Conference
( http://time4online.org.nz )
Sarah asked me a question about my podcasting presentation. I thought it would be kinda cool to post both Sarah's question and my answer here as a podcast. Sarah's question was along the lines of do I think there is more learning involved in a scripted podcast than an 'off the cuff' podcast, but have a listen to Sarah ask the question herself...
What do you think? Do you agree with my answer?
Adventures in Podcasting Part One
This is cross posted from my ICT U Can blog.
The Time4 Online NZ virtual conference runs from 28th May to the 8th June, 2007. I will be presenting on Podcasting in the Online Publishing With Audio and Visual Tools section of the programme. This is part one of my presentation looking at the importance of Oral Language instruction in the classroom and some of the research around this. The presentation also gives a general outline of what podcasting is.
