Developing Oral Language with Podcasting
Had lots of fun podcasting with some kids in Whakatane last week.
We used audacity (free download) to mix our sounds.
It was neat to see the kids enjoying the sound of their own voices !!!
"The number one skill in the 21st C is effective oral language. Not only is it essential in keeping relationships together it also is the basis for effective team work in sport and social engagement. It is also the most important skill in the workforce.” Mark Treadwell
Some ideas for using podcasts in the classroom
* another way of submitting work
* create a podcast about a school trip
* create a news report
* create a class or school radio station
* find and use podcasts as another source of research material
