The Puget Sound Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology is excited to offer its first course on podcasting.

Podcasting Basics - One Day Course

Over 100 million iPods have been sold, and there's a good chance many of your students own one of their own. How can you leverage that great piece of technology to improve student learning and increase communication between home and school? This workshop will teach you how to produce your own simple podcasts using free software, how to locate some GREAT education based podcasts, and how to publish them on your own blog site so students and parents alike can subscribe to your podcasts with ease! You must have basic computer skills, but you don't need to be a super techie to succeed in this workshop!

Morning: What is a podcast? How can you use them in class to meet educational standards and align with your current curriculum? What tools are needed to create one? These questions will be answered and you will have time to begin your first practice podcast using Audacity. You will create a short interview project with a partner during this session. Please be sure to bring a flash drive to save your project on.

Afternoon: How can you add music and sound effects to your podcast? How can you set up your classroom to have students recording and creating? How do you share the finished product with the world? This session will have you create a second podcast practice and set-up your school blog for sharing podcasts. You will also be given a framework for creating a specialized podcast for your classroom.
