Pros and Cons to Podcasting Profitability may prove elusive Cons- Uneven production quality Long-term costs may increase Hard to search efficiently Although there are some good things about podcasting there are also some downfalls. The first down fall is podcasters don’t get recognized easily, and will often spend several hours working on free content to the public. The other downfall is podcasters must meet the expectations of the listeners and if they don’t the listener will simply find someone else to listen to. The software programs can increase in costs depending how popular the podcasts are. There is no great way to look for podcasting, therefore it is hard to be noticed as a podcaster, and can take a long time to get listeners.Heibutziki, Ralp. (November 2,2010) .

I was very surprised by some of the pros and cons Inoticed on this website. I am not familiar withpodcasting, so it nice to see positives and negatives thatgoes along with podcasting. It would be a nice way forteachers to incorporate a fun way to learn for theirstudents. I feel that the cons of podcasting would notaffect teachers, and I will definitely use this in myclassroom when I become a teacher.
* This article is about how teachers all over the world, have provided iPods or used iPods in their classrooms. They provide different activities to the students, that involve using the iPods. One activity would be using podcasting. One college professor uses podcasting as a way to prepare lectures for the students. A teacher states "My students research better, read more, write better and understand the material." Another way podcasting could be used is to enhance the students’ musical talents. Some teachers even use this as a way to give students incentives to do well on their projects, and in return they get to be in the podcast video they make as a classroom.Shen,Fern .( October 19,2005).

This article also focuses on some of the things we cannot control, and how they are made easier with podcasting. An elementary teacher has produced a podcast for those students who are trying to learn English. This is very helpful to kids, because they can take this home and work on it on their own time. Parents who are always busy working, can program their computers with the podcasts. This will help them keep up with what their children are doing in school, and any announcements they may not hear about otherwise. This is also a way for students to keep memories, and go back and listen to their performances.For more information on this website pleaseclick belowhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/18/AR2005101801670_2.html
I don’t know much about podcasting. I have learned so muchjust from this website. I really didn’t realize how muchpodcasting was used for in education. I feel that podcastingwould be a great way for students to learn and have fun atthe same time. Although this is a wonderful thing to bringinto classrooms, it is also very expensive and would take a lotof funds from the schools. It would be up to the teachers toshow all the great things that these iPods would do for thestudents. I really enjoyed learning ways to incorporatepodcasting into classrooms, and will definitely use this in myclassroom when I become a teacher.
Ridpath said. “ They are a cell phone, iPod, Xbox generation. This is just meeting [students] where they are.”“They’re important in today’s society for getting jobs and for being a good citizen.” “If technology assists in the learning process and assists the teacher, I am all for it. If the technology is an attempt by the school system to be cool, then forget it.” “This is what [students are] using at home and have heard a lot about, but we, the school systems, have not been stepping up.” “It’s hands-on learning,” she said. “[students are] not just sitting at their desk.” Click below for more information Antonio, Juan.

This article is about what different teachers and parents feel about students using a new technology at school. Richard Ridpath thinks it’s a great way for students to learn. He says “ I teacher the lesson and the iPod supports what I taught the previous day.” This is a great way for students to review what the teacher has taught. They may also use iPods as a fun way to put together a skit, or record their musical talents. iPods are used for so much more than just listening to music. People can use an iPod to do a podcast, and make learning fun!Antonio, Juan. ( February 17,2010) .

I really enjoyed reading this article! I am new topodcasting. Therefore I did not know all the detailsabout it. I did not realize a student could see a podcaston their iPods or cell phones. I think this would be agreat way to bring technology into a classroom.Students are always open to learning in newways, rather than just doing paper pencil work. I feelthat teachers should be trained on these technologiesfirst, before they try to have their students use them.The schools who got a grant to order iPods for aclassroom are extremely lucky. I agree with the articleand feel that students know what they are use to andwhat they are use to is the newtechnologies, therefore teachers should find a way toincorporate it into the lessons and homework.
Podcasting is used for more than just fun, it is used in classrooms andin many schools to assist the students in learning. Podcasting is a newgeneration that encourages students to want to learn and make itmore fun for them! I have learned so much doing this project ! I neverknow that podcasting was so popular, and that so many schools weregetting grants to buy new technology to use in classrooms. I havealways thought of iPods something that plays music, when in reality itcan be so helpful to students and teachers. This can also becomebeneficial for parents who want to keep track of how their child isdoing in school. When I become a teacher I would love to incorporatepodcasting into my classroom! Students want to do activities whilelearning, not just be sitting at a desk doing pencil paper work. This is agreat way to get more students involved!
