  2. 2. What is podcasting?<br />Digital media files, usually released in a series, that are available for download<br />They usually have RSS feeds attached to them that users can subscribe to so they can see the latest podcast in the series<br />Podcasting can refer to audio or video files<br />Podcasts are often downloaded and listened to on an MP3 player<br />
  3. 3. Why podcasting for education?<br />Engage students beyond the printed page<br />Podcasts can include:<br />Lectures<br />Slideshows<br />Tours<br />Interviews<br />How-to guides<br />Supplemental info – notes, resources, references<br />Variety of different classroom assignments<br />

  11. 11. Finding more podcasts<br />Or search iTunes Podcast Directory at the iTunes Store:<br />
  12. 12. Using podcasts in the classroom<br />Examples of classrooms using podcasts:<br />WillowWeb Radio – Willowdale Elementary in NE, podcasts are by students and about a variety of things<br />Isinglass Teen Booktalks– Middle & High School in NH, student booktalk podcasts<br />Mr. Meagher’s Classes – chemistry teacher podcasts<br />
  13. 13. Podcasting with students<br />Examples of podcast assignments:<br />Older students write original stories and podcast them to give to younger students<br />Students use a podcast to describe what they learned on a school field trip or in class<br />Interviews make great podcasts<br />Students create and then market a new product via a podcast<br />Students create their own math riddles and share them via a podcast<br />Instead of a presentation on a topic in front of the class, the presentation is the podcast<br />
  14. 14. Podcasting skills<br />Creating a podcast uses a lot of skills:<br />Planning & research<br />Synthesize & evaluate the information<br />Script writing – introduction, body, conclusion<br />Delivery of the presentation<br />How well does presentation stick to topic<br />Technical production<br />Responsible use of music and/or images<br />If part of a group assignment - teamwork<br />
  15. 15. Podcasting tools<br />When we meet in-person, I’m going to have a couple different podcasting tools we can use, and we’re going to use them while we meet, so get ready to make a podcast about:<br />Something you learned in MILI<br />Something from MILI you’re applying in class<br />Something from MILI you may apply in class<br />Something you learned in MILI that will help with your own professional development<br />
  16. 16. What is Screencasting<br />A digital recording of the computer screen, often including audio narration<br />Sometimes called a video capture or video capturing<br />Very useful for when you need to show students (or other teachers) how to do a process, like:<br />Use the library catalog or a database<br />Use a certain website<br />Or even do a certain process, like working through a math problem<br />
  17. 17. Why screencasting for You?<br />Showing a process rather than telling how to do it can sometimes be more helpful, particularly for students who learn better visually and not through lecture<br />Can help with repetitiveness – instead of telling a process over and over, maybe a screencast can help?<br />
  18. 18. Why screencasting for students?<br />The same skills they’d use while podcasting they’d use in screencasting:<br />Planning & research<br />Synthesize & evaluate the information<br />Script writing – introduction, body, conclusion<br />Delivery of the presentation – how do they get the process across in clear, concise ways?<br />How well does presentation stick to topic<br />Technical production<br />Responsible use of music and/or images<br />If part of a group assignment - teamwork<br />
  19. 19. Screentoaster – web-based tool<br />
  20. 20. Screentoaster recording info<br />
  21. 21. Alternative to screentoaster<br />Don’t like ScreenToaster? Try Screencast-O-Matic<br />How-to video lower on the Screencast-O-Matic website<br />
  22. 22. before our meeting<br />Watch the ScreenToaster or Screencast-O-Matic demo and then use them & create a screencast<br />Make a screencast of something like:<br />Basic search in a database<br />Basic skills in software, like Word<br />A process, like working through a math problem in Word or Excel<br />How to find your favorite part of a website (and why it’s your favorite or why others should use it)<br />How to save something to student files<br />How to use the Ning to write a blog post<br />
  23. 23. before our meeting<br />After you make your screencast, post the link to it in a blog post<br />Blog your experiences about using these screencasting tools<br />Blog your thoughts about how you could use screencasting for your classes<br />As always, use the Independent Learning Instructions under Month 8 for more blogging inspiration<br />
