  • 1. Podcasting as a whole class activity John Sutton ICT Consultant working at Chorlton Park Primary School
  • 2. 1. Focus on skills
    • Software skills
      • How to record, edit, etc... (Hint, pre-record a short piece with obvious coughs, pauses etc)
    • Questioning skills
      • Open and closed questions (Each group record one or two examples and post on blog for peer feedback)
    • Script writing skills
      • Displaying awareness of audience (Record examples for feedback – do they work? Is there a difference between writing, and writing to be read aloud)
    • Presenting skills
      • It’s not about the silly voice! (How do you make it sound like you are not reading a script?)
      • Work on the above, recording in small groups, then loads of peer review
  • 3. 2. Integrated Task
    • In small groups, produce a radio show with 3 or 4 elements
      • Introduction
      • Interview
      • News item
      • Entertainment piece (poem, joke etc)
    • Record, edit, publish and peer review
  • 4. 3. Class Podcast
    • Use each radio group to produce a discrete element of a class podcast
      • Work independently
      • Use the “Chapters” feature in Podium
      • Set up a “recording station” for the group to work at
      • Assign a TA?
      • Be realistic – don’t plan a weekly podcast!
