I presented on this topic at the 2008 Virginia Society for Technology in Education Conference in Roanoke, VA. I see many educators either making podcasts for kids or starting podcasting projects, but ignoring some of the traits of digital learners. My points are many, but could be summarized as such: podcasting really takes off when it's the kids making them; the "real" learning takes place in planning, writing, and practicing the podcast; publishing the podcasts for an authentic audience is important for assessment motivation. Thanks for watching! I'd appreciate comments if you agree/disagree with my points.
