considering podcasting in the c w classroom
Considering podcasting in the C&W classroom
  • Another form of “writing” and media
    • Part of technological literacy
    • Another form our students may need to master
  • Old/new form of writing and rhetoric
    • Traditional form (think Greeks)
    • Current “popular” from (presentations, speeches, …)
    • Digital with “universal” access
  • “Better” knowledge distribution model
  • Lessons learned may help other forms
rethinking the old in new ways the 5 canons
Rethinking the old in new ways: The 5 canons
  • Invention: "discovering the best available means of persuasion” (Aristotle)
    • What to say?
    • What topoi?Take testimony for example
  • Arrangement: the order of discourse
    • Is there a genre/subgenre?
    • If so, what is the genre?
      • Music before? After?
      • Which point first?
      • Intro? Outro?
  • Style: the artful expression of ideas appropriate to one’s purpose

How will it be said?

      • Ethos & pathos become key
      • Things to consider: Dictation, accents, jargon, word choices, expression, speed
rethinking the old in new ways the 5 canons1
Rethinking the old in new ways: The 5 canons
  • Memory: “treasury of things invented” (Ad Herennium), Recall of topoi often drawing on kairos and grounded in audience and circumstances
    • Scripted podcasts: may delve into memory
    • Unscripted podcasts: just like the good ‘ol ancient days
  • Delivery: public publication/presentation of discourse. How it is said: presentation of argument with effective gestures, tone, words, movement, and images
    • Oral roots in new ways:
      • Editing
      • Sound levels
      • Voice modulation
      • Music
      • Visuals & album art
      • Performance
    • More “traditional” print/web based concerns
      • Transcripts/ text forms of the content
      • Websites and associated “places” for the podcasts
rethinking the old in new ways audience purpose context tone
Rethinking the old in new ways:Audience, purpose, context, tone
  • Audience:
    • Their voice makes it more personal and increases their investment
    • Words, accents, music, length, …, and overall message more deeply considered
    • Better audience “visualization”
  • Purpose:
    • Often becomes more than “just another paper I have to write”
    • Can portray in “more” ways: music, tone, word choice, speed,…
    • Easily leads them into the next step
  • Context:
    • Suddenly user/listener/reader/ context matters
      • Will they be at their computer? Driving? Running? Cooking? Folding laundry?
    • Considers what matters and works for the user’s context
  • Tone: Tone now means something
