Patriots Practice Podcasting

Although we were plagued by hotsync problems with voice memos, students are managing to finalize their school announcement podcast. We are using Audacity to edit the voice memos and add background music. By Monday afternoon, we should have seven individual podcasts concerning news and events at FPHS.

Next week, we will continue by creating a podcast for Constitution Week. Students will once again be divided into groups where they will combine patriotic music, a recitation of the Preamble, a short interview with a veteran, a brief history of Constitution Day, and a short citizenship quiz into an informative podcast. I hope to post these to my website for others to hear.

Following podcasting, my students will explore the use of virutal tours on the Internet. Once again, groups of students will create an actual virtual tour of our school campus. I hope to incorporate videos, photos, voice memos, text, and whatever else we can come up with to create a tour that can be featured on our school webpage. Stay tuned for further developments . . .

Hi Debbie!

Speaking of a podcast about the Constitution, have you listened to Radio WillowWeb's Willowcast #9 from last year's Constitution Day? It would be a great thing for your students to listen to as an example (even though it is hosted, written, and recorded by fifth graders).
