This is a great example of using pod casting in the classroom. I'm surprised, a little, at the young age of the students. It reminds me that technology, like pod casting, can be used all along the educational system..The students definitely look happy in all of the activities that they are involved in. This, to me, is the best advertisement for implementing pod casting in the classroom. I'm sure they are learning, as well, which makes it even better. This is a great resource for teachers who want to see pod casting in action.
Benefits of Pod Casting in the Classroom by Joe Dale
There are so many benefits to pod casting in the classroom. This video and site helps to emphasize this point. Students are allowed to interact with each other and use their creativity and imagination. These things are needed so much in the classroom. There are even benefits for parents when it comes to pod casting. This makes the argument for pod casting even better. For example, when a child is sick, the information from a pod cast is readily and easily available. Pod casts are also very easy to do. This is just one element of technology in the classroom that is easily promoted and put into practice in the classroom.
I found this site very beneficial.
