Have you ever thought about using podcasting for education? Podcasting is a great way to share and gain information and can be easily incorporated into your teaching. I found a wonderful podcast series called “Science…sort of” that I plan to use in my science classes. I found the podcasts to be very fun to listen to- they were entertaining and thought-provoking. According to the podcast authors, the tagline for their podcast series is “Conversations about things that are science, things that are sort of science, and things that wish they were science”. If you would like to check out this series, click HERE.
I chose this particular podcast because it is right up my content alley- since I teach science and this a podcast about science. I have thought of a great way to use these series of podcasts. I would like to listen to the podcasts and find specific ones where the authors talk about topics that students learn about in my classroom. I would then use clips from those podcasts and do one of two things: share them in the classroom and have a discussion about the topic and what was said in the podcast, or have students listen to them on their own and have a forum discussion throughout a week of school on Moodle to talk about the podcast. I think these podcasts could enhance my curriculum and student discussion, bringing a new and unique dynamic to my students’ learning. I can’t wait to start using these great podcasts! Happy listening!
