Hello Everyone!

I wonder if you can help me out?

I am going to be presenting at an ed tech conference next week, discussing my use of teacher created podcasts and screencasts or "masterycasts" and how they have impacted my classroom. I am going to be showing teachers how they can do the same, using their students iPods and mp3 players as teaching tools.

I am looking for other examples to show them! Please share what you have created to help kids, or the work of others you have seen as well. I know I am not the only teacher out there doing this! I am interested in resources and examples running from sites, ITunes (or similar aggregators), or other audio/video use of players of any type assisting learning.

How are educators using audio/video, iPods, and mp3's as teaching and learning tools?

Thanks for your help!

Sue P

Thanks so much. It is just what I am looking for.

Don't forget to check the "podcasting" tag link over to the right... http://www.classroom20.com/forum/topic/listForTag?tag=podcasting.
You might want to check out gabcast.com for creating podcasts from your phone.

I currently have pod casts by 1st grade, 2nd grade , 6th grade and 8th grade posted on my wiki.
http://computerkiddoswiki.pbwiki.com/Saint+Anthony+of+Padua+Page The second graders Pod cast on government will give you a chuckle. It is HereBe sure to listen to the description of the "Oval" office. The first graders did theirs on the water cycle and weather. The first graders weather is here
Links to the Sketch up Movie Makers videos are Here

the 8th graders podcasts are here

Biomes powerpoints are available here

These are all current examples of my students work- I post for around 6 weeks-and pull off and replace with new projects
K12 Online is a wonderful source for Professional Development - all teacher-created podcasts online and free.
I use a Gabcast channel for Spanish homework. I ask learners to listen to a 15min podcast called Coffeebreak Spanish. Then learners call in answers to a prompt using any phone to Gabcast. I have subscribed to the Gabcast channel and collect homework in my RSS reader. Learners enjoy using iPods and cellphones in our classroom, esp since other teachers do not allow these devices at all.
Lastly Wes Fryer has a wonderful wiki resource on Cell Phones for Learning.
Your conference has passed-but I wanted to say thanks for presenting podcasting.
I created podcasts all summer on my travels-and I had a ball!
My students will be creating podcasts this coming school year in AP US History, Econ Honors,
Florida History and for the "Historians Club"
(The club documents and archives the history of my school)
I'm looking forward to learning more and implementing this in my classes.
we will have an ipod lab to use at my school
Thanks! That's awesome Connie. I actually won an award from NYSCATE for my work; it is great to know that it is being recognized. I have updated my website and added more content as well along with a new podcast on "podcasting" and using hand helds, called MasteryCast Chat. My site is www.masterymaze.com. You also might want to join the NING group I started as well. www.ipodeducators.ning.com. I would love to know how your lab works out! I hope you can share your experiences with us there as well.

My students did their first podcasts last spring.

You can get to their podcasts by going to my class site: http://readerswriters.edublogs.org and clicking on the Podcasts! page. The latest episode was a test recording by me. Scroll down to listen to episodes posted by students. Click the green arrow next to the name.

If you are an NPR follower, this podcast idea is based on their series, "This I Believe." A google search will give you more info about the This I Believe essays.
Hey, just wanted to say "hey" to another alum. No only did my husband and I graduate from KU but we had sons at KU for 12 years. (Different sons for different lengths of time!)
Hi! I started at another university, but ended up getting my 3 degrees from KU, I lived in Lawrence for 10 years and I NEVER thought I would leave ... but, life happens.
Hi Sue!

I create podcast study guides for my students to listen to the night before a grammar test. Then I host an online question/answer session should they still have concerns. I create my "Cobbcasts" in Garageband and upload them directly into each student's mp3 file which I put on their desktop in the school email system. Most love it, and I have the parents listening too!
I think podcasts could be one of the best tools available today. The only problem that I see, is that most are missing the best use of Podcasts (IMO). I think the best use of Podcasts, is for Teachers to be able to deliver content to their students! We have one teacher, who records his math lessons during his prep period the day before. He then plays the video podcast during all of his classes the next day, stopping it when appropriate, asking questions, making sure students understand. This method can also ensure that each class receives the same content. He then makes the Podcasts available off of his web page on our district server. I have also helped him put all of his lessons onto DVD's for use in a DVD player, so he can let students who don't have internet access or access to a computer at home, be able to check out the DVD. The files are also available on the school network, and on test day, their are plenty of students who review lessons in the computer lab.
This is what I think the best use of podcasts is, and whether or not students created any podcasts, just doesn't seem to important to me. I think Podcasts, mp3 players, mp4 video players (IPods and others) can be used to help us extend the school day beyond the "traditional hours" and allow school to be anytime, anyplace and anywhere. Which is what I think is needed in todays world. Podcasts along with other sites like hippo campus (http://www.hippocampus.org/), can be used to help deliver content, lectures, etc. and free teacher's time to work more one on one with the students who need help. These things are part of what will make up the 21st century classroom of the future.
