Langwitches- Podcasting with 1st Grade
In Ms. Tolisano`s class her students create podcasts for the books they read. This was a great post to read because these first graders are learning at an early age how to use a computer for more than just games. These students make their own audiobooks and give a hardcopy to their peers so they can read along with the tape. This is a great idea for teachers.
The Benefits of Podcasting by Joe Dale
Podcasting is a way for teachers to interact with students outside of the classroom. This also allows parents to see what their children are doing in school. Since we are in the millennial period, podcasting is a good way for students to put technology to better use. Podcasting allows creativity and innovation. Students enjoy podcasting and like teaching others. This would also allow students who miss class to watch the podcast to see what they missed that day. The video by Joe Dale was very informative and taught me a lot about the benefits of podcasting. This is an awesome tool for teachers to use.
Listening-Comprehension-Podcasting by Langwitches
In this blog second graders record a story and make a podcast. This post is a lesson about the students learning and comprehending Hebrew. The students had to record what they learned about the story of Purim in Hebrew. The students worked together in creating the podcast. This would be something that I will use when teaching my students.
