Basically, the workshop should go: Presentation about podcasts, what they are, finding cool ones, maybe watching few Then we’ll move on to Audacity for about 2 hours until lunch - record and edit an audio clip In the second half we will move into royalty-free media and Movie Maker, bringing in the Audacity clip to the video
Describe what a podcast is, ask if anyone is aware of them, what are their favorites, why do they use them
Take time to find cool pre-done podcasts that they could use in their teaching and how they might have their students use them.
This is where the technical stuff starts - we need to have mics and Audacity set up
Brief explanation of popular formats - Stick with Mp3 for podcast purposes if possible
Starting with audacity - give overview then give teachers time to work with it individually or in pairs By the end of the session they should each have at least 5 minutes of audio podcast they can work with; we can go around and be quiet for each person to do their thing or do interviews with each other
Publishing info - working with iTunes users and posting to a server (see if tech coord. has space available, otherwise show them DivShare, GeoCities, or PodBean)
Remember that not all of these have built-in hosting service! Some you’ll need to add your own URLs from MP3s on your own server
Ask if they want to see garageband at work on my Mac if they have the option available and want to explore
Lakeridge - teacher is student username/pass They can also log in as guest to see the resources but can’t comment on forum. Ask for suggestions of things they’d like to see there that aren’t listed.
