  8. 8. Podcasts conveying content... OK, so maybe I have a Dad's perspective, but the podcast does show what can be done, even by an 8 year old. That podcast also shows a feature that we can refer to as remix , because it is mainly a remix of content found on Wikipedia.
  9. 9. Think about education in an increasingly digital world. Do the old transmission paradigms still work? Did they ever work? What about the creative potential of the students? Where does it fit in to the “podagogy”?
  10. 10. Can podcasting be the beginning of a strong remix culture in education? Or is podcasting just an extension of the sage on stage model?
  11. 11. “ Burn to Learn”
