  • 3.  Classroom Audio Podcasting Instead of asking students to write exclusively for an audience of one (the teacher) using technology from the 1500’s (a pencil), teachers can now challenge students to publish for a global listening audience via a classroom podcast. (Fryer, 2006) The author provides 10 compelling reasons why teachers should use and incorporate podcasting into their curriculum.
  • 4.  The best thing about podcasting is that it is a cheap technology to implement  Podcasting invites a global audience into your classroom Its disruptive nature is key to both its potential motivational power and the mixed reception it can invite with different audiences.  Audio podcasting is digital storytelling  Podcasting can be interactive Podcaster can realize the benefits and excitement inherent in interactive web 2.0 dialog.  Podcasting can be creative
  • 5. I think that this is an incredible way to inspire children to be creative and learn at the same time.  Having them create a storyboard first ensures that they have researched all the facts and are getting the educational value out of the exercise.  It is also a great way to teach students about tone, intonation, speed of delivery, and expression.
  • 6.  Blogs can support the collaborative element so important for peer to peer learning  Traditional classroom interaction is teacher to peer. With the introduction of blogs, you hear the voices of all students, and includes student to student dialog
  • 7.  An important part of having a classroom blog is providing posting guidelines and expectations.  This is also a great way to teach students how to credit the work and ideas of others.  Involve the students in all aspects of the blogging process.  Here is a link to a great classroom blog: 
  • 8. I think that creating a classroom blog gives your students an opportunity to have their voice heard.  You have to have a plan in place before you start blogging or it will not be effective.  Realize that creating a blog will require a ton of time to keep as a viable tool.
  • 9.  You can use the interactive whiteboards as an assistive technology tool  It can accommodate multiple learning styles including tactile, audio, and visual. (Bell, 2002)  Interactive Whiteboards benefit all students, but especially those with learning disabilities
  • 10. This is a video to demonstrate how to use a white board.
  • 11. I would have never guessed that the whiteboards could be used as an assistive technology. Also having the children come up to the board and use it, will help them stay focused on the subject at hand. I like that you print class notes or email them. This article made me think of other classroom technologies in different ways.
  • 12.  As a teacher you have a whole new tool bag to draw from.  You have to use the technology to get the most from your students without using it just for the sake of using it.  Most of all you have to teach your students to be responsible with the technology.  I’m excited to use all of the new tools that are now available.
