Overview

Like many educators, you may already take advantage of podcasts in your classroom, but have you ever had your students do the creating? It's easy, and you'll be surprised what students learn from this technology. Podcasting is a powerful tool for teaching 21st-century literacy-;the literacy of social processes. Not only will students learn technology skills that they can use throughout their lives, but podcasting also connects and applies student's learning to the world around them. Understanding the audience requires students to empathize with others, and developing and posting relevant, engaging podcasts helps students become active, engaged members of society.

In section one, Students-Powered Podcasting explains what podcasts are and why your students should create them. It leads Mac and PC users through tutorials for two audio-editing programs, Garage Band and Audacity, to enable you and your students to dive right into podcasting. Section two includes 17 stand-alone units containing overviews, procedures for implementation, assessment rubrics, and links to examples. These classroom-tested projects are flexible and meant to be changed, adapted, and expanded based on your students, subject matter, and resources available.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Molly Krichten
Introducing technology in a classroom or library environment can be challenging, especially when adult leadership feels as if their knowledge is less than the students. It can also be tricky to implement new initiatives in these settings if administration does not see value in the venture. This resource prepares educators to aid students in creating their own podcasts, provides lesson plans, and sets forth the correlation to seven sets of educational standards used throughout the country. The purpose of the text is to encourage and empower educators not only to instruct students on how to create and edit podcasts, but also to learn through podcasting. Just as writing across the curriculum has changed how students are taught, podcasting across the curriculum puts literacy as the main objective, and incorporates social processes to encourage student creativity and participation. From defining podcast and other terms to providing instruction on using audio editing programs Audacity and GarageBand to setting forth specific objectives for varied projects including reader's theater, historical interviews, fanfiction, and many others, Shamburg's practical approach and concise information empowers the reader to implement methods in a classroom or library setting. The information is presented logically and cohesively. The charts featuring the related educational standards are especially useful for public school teachers. Copyright and fair use are addressed in the appendixes. This excellent work deftly introduces podcasting technology and tools and generates enthusiasm among young people by addressing many interests, as well as educational objectives.
