Educational uses of Podcasting

What is Podcasting?

 

The following definition came from Wikipedia (2010)

 

A podcast (or netcast) is a series of digital audio files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication. The term "podcasting" was first mentioned by Ben Hammersley in The Guardian newspaper in a February 2004 article, along with other proposed names for the new medium. It is a portmanteau of the words "pod"—derived from iPod, a brand of portable media player produced by Apple Computer (now Apple),—and "broadcasting".

Why use Podcasting?

In the education field there are student and teacher created podcasts.

 

Creating a podcast allows students to share learning experiences. It provides them with a world-wide audience that makes learning meaningful and assessment authentic. For those English Learners in the classroom Podcasting helps reinforce the English language because students must create a script, read, record their script/voice.

 

Teachers can use the technology to provide additional and revision material to students to download and review at a time that suits them. The flexibility that such time-shifting offers makes podcasting a valuable educational tool.

Teachers can use the technology to provide additional and revision material to students to download and review at a time that suits them. The flexibility that such time-shifting offers makes podcasting a valuable educational tool.  Teachers can create summaries of material taught in the classroom for students to download at home and use as a study guide for an upcoming test. Teachers can create a podcast on the weeks vocabulary words for a small listening center in the classroom as a study aid.
