TRANSCRIPT

  • Integrating technology in the classroom through Podcasting

  • In this module you will learnHow to use a Program called Audacity to create a podcast.Different purposes that podcasts can be used for classroom integration.How to create and use your own podcast.How to take what you have learned from this module and teach it to your students.

  • Examples of integrating technology in the classroom through the use of podcasting.

    Book talks

    Science logs

  • Book Talks A book talk is a brief overview of a book that is created to heighten the interest of its potential readers. In lots ways, it can be seen a sales pitch for the book given by the reader.

    **Steps demonstrated in next columnStart by choosing one or more books to share with your class.

    Create a brief, engaging presentation that includes the title, author, genre, setting, and a short summary. You may want to describe an intriguing moment of conflict from the book without telling how the conflict is resolved. Then leave the audience in suspense with, "If you want to know what happened, read this book!"

    Give the reasons why you liked the book and why you think others should read it. Practice your book talk. Be sure that it is brief and engaging and that it gives enough information for someone to make a decision about whether or not to read the book.

    4. Finally, create an audio recording of each student delivering his or her book talk. Each one will be an episode in the book talk podcast series from your class. Your students will be able to share their work with their families, with other classes in the school and with readers everywhere.

  • Science LogsCollecting authentic data during an investigation or experiment is an important part of learning within the science classroom. Consider a classroom where students are determining the properties of an unknown substance. Recording notes using a digital audio recorder, tape recorder*, MP3 player, or computer allows students to capture thoughts and observations in real time that can be used to supplement notes. The recorded investigation notes can be used to facilitate a peer review of data for an added level of reflection and review (Koch, J., 2004).

  • Becoming Familiar with Audacity and its features.
