Blog Post 4-Why Podcasts? How do we do a podcast?

What is a podcast?
a podcast is a file in which a video and a powerpoint becomes an mp3 format that can be listened to on an ipod or an mp3 player and can be listened to anytime and shared anywhere you wish it to be shared to.

How do you do a podcast? Podcasts are really simple to do-just record it using video software such as a webcam or using skype, etc. After you record your video you can upload it to a videoshare website such as YouTube. Next you create a powerpoint if applicable, and then you use software such as imovie to convert it to any other form you wish it to be in. Then you would share your podcast with whoever you want to view the entire podcast.

Why do we do them? Podcasts are important to learning because there are many auditory learners who love to listen to things on ipods or mp3s. It is also important to learning because it allows students to take their lessons anywhere they go using technology. It is also important so students can get information anytime, anywhere without having to ask anyone any questions about it-why would students want this? This is because students don't want to have to rely on their teacher for information, they want to be able to figure it out for themselves and be self-sufficient learners and resourceful individuals.
