Listening to and Creating Podcasts
Podcasts is a free app in the App Store. Podcasts allows the teacher to gain personalized learning on a multitude of topics anytime, anywhere. (Check out this blog post to learn more podcasts as professional learning.)
Teachers can use the same concept in the classroom. Have the students create a podcast about a recent book instead of writing a book report or about a science topic instead of creating a poster. Podcasts don't have to end up in iTunes. Podcasts could be a list of links on a website, Wiki, and classroom blog.
One resource you can use to create a podcast is Vocaroo. This website allows you to record your voice and download it as an MP3.
