Podcasting II: The Renaissance of the Medium
I first presented on Podcasting at NAEA back in 2007, when I was teaching high school and was excited to find a way to get kids to use technology in research. Podcasting was new and cool, and my students were excited to use a new technology. Then it faded from view a bit, with most listeners (who were dedicated listeners!) a small and fairly nerdy group.
Then Serial exploded onto the scene. Serial was a story told of a murder and trial, told in weekly installations. And podcasting began to draw a lot of attention, and lots of revenue. Because it turns out, people who listen to podcasts, listen to a LOT of podcasts, and they're faithful listeners.
So this presentation was a re-examination of podcasting. I never stopped using it, and my undergrads and credential students create podcasts for a number of assignments. In this presentation, I look at how podcast technology has changed, and go through the basics of how to make podcasts. It's fast, free, and easy!
Here is a pdf of the powerpoint I used:
Here is a copy of the rubric I use to score podcasts:
Here's a link to my class website where I have some instructions on how to create podcasts:
And here are some student examples
