<ul><li>The article “Podcasting in the Classroom” written by Brian Flanagan and Brendan Calandra discussed the meaning of podcasting and how it can be used in education. In this article you learn about Duke University handing out 1,650 Apple iPods to freshmen. Before they handed out the iPods they preloaded them with an orientation schedule, academic calendar, athletic schedule , lyrics to the fight song, advice from other students , and information from Duke administrators. </li></ul>
<ul><li>This article also talks about how podcasting can benefit students and the different ways this can happen. When talking about the benefits there was one quote from the article that stuck out to me. This quote stated, “Podcasting, therefore, may be a cost-effective way to deliver instruction without compromising, learning effectiveness.” It also talks about how to get and create a podcast. It even shortly talks about vodcasting which is video podcasting. </li></ul><ul><li>Click here to view article. </li></ul>
<ul><li>To me this article had some very interesting points. One of the things that really stuck in my head was a way to use the podcast. It mentions how it can be a quick, easy, and cheap way for students to communicate across the world. Also, when I read about the ways the students used them on their iPods I was pretty excited. I have listened to many podcast on my computer but have never thought about downloading them to my iPod. It was also helpful for me that the article had step by step directions for creating a podcast. Whenever there are instructions for something it is always very helpful to me. </li></ul>For a different article click here . To end click here.
<ul><li>The article “Podcasting Possibilities” written by Mimi Leonard contained some very good points. In the article the author talked about some important parts of podcasting. It discussed that podcasting can help students who are not good with public speaking, but students still need to be a good public speaker because they can’t depend on podcasting. </li></ul>

<ul><li>With this article I found many different ways I could use podcasting in my classroom. One of my favorite ways was being able to use different clips from videos and being able to add them into my lecture. Another teacher even talked about how she can send stuff to her students that are in different parts of the world. But this could even work with students who are out of town or maybe on a family trip so they will not fall behind. I was glad this article mentioned a few negatives to podcasting, but it is still a very good thing to know how to use. </li></ul>For a different article click here . To end click here.
