Author: Mario Green

Podcast has introduced the broader access to technology, and the larger insight into the benefits of different ways of contact and participation. Many people have motivated faculty and academic institutions to explore the use of podcasting in the classroom.

As a future educator I want to be the best teacher I can be. I believe podcasting is a wonderful tool that I will be able to use to help me achieve this goal. Teachers who have begun to use podcasts in their teachings are reporting many positive outcomes. The achievement of their students is better, attendance is better, and the morale of their students is higher. These examples are all a result of using podcasting effectively in the classroom.

Function of Podcasts?

Podcasts can be created from original material by students and teachers or existing audio files can be downloaded for classroom use. Creating a podcast allows students to share learning experiences. It provides them with a world-wide audience that makes learning meaningful and assessment authentic. Teachers can use the technology to provide additional and revision material to students to download and review at a time that suits them. The flexibility that such time-shifting offers makes podcasting a valuable educational tool.
