Exploring Podcasting

Today, we begin exploring podcasting and how it can be used on the Palm. Quite frankly, I did not realize how exciting this could be. As an introduction for my students, I designed a trackstar that required students to visit six different websites and answer questions from each website. The trackstar also asked students to download and install Audacity as well as listening to parts of several podcasts. FYI, the trackstar number is 268838. For homework, students will write a script for the introduction to a school news podcast and record it on their Palm. Tomorrow, we will listen to each one and vote on our favorite.

Prior to Thanksgiving break, we explored the use of E-book Studio. After downloading the trial version, students created an e-book describing the projects that we have completed thus far and reflected on what they had learned.
