  2. 2. Session Description<br />The session will focus on using iTunes to support your curriculum and meet the diverse needs of your students. By using podcast resources appropriately, teachers can design learning environments that are flexible, versatile and interactive. Of course, sharing search tips as well as identifying additional sources for K-6 appropriate podcasts will be addressed. Resources for portable professional development for the classroom teacher will be shared, too. The majority of the time will be spent on locating podcasts. <br />
  3. 3. Podcasting<br />A very new word, for a recent phenomenon, and a great example of how technological change, especially that relating to the Internet and the media, can be a driving force not only in generating new words, but in determining whether they survive and succeed. In this case the rapid adoption of podcasting (the technology) as a means of making audio material available has seen podcasting (the word) move quickly from its first tentative steps in 2004, as only one of a number of suggested names for the process, to near-ubiquity in 2008. The current OED quarterly release also includes other members of the same family: podcast as a noun and a verb, podcaster, and even the somewhat ungainly adjective podcasted.Diamond, Graeme (2008, December).
