Podcasting


We approach podcasting here from two vantage points.

First, we examine the procedures and strategies for using podcasting as a component of our own personal learning network. Knowing how to efficiently find and utilize the vast resources that are offered with podasting is certainly a critical skill for teacher and student alike.

Secondly, we speak to the process of taking those first steps in creating podcasts. Teachers (and more importantly students) can create rich and engaging content through this medium, especially in ways that enable and augment problem-based learning techniques.
