  1. What is a Podcast?Why Should I Podcast? LeRoy Wong Boston Public Schools OIIT

  2. A podcast: • Is an electronic audio file (but can contain images and video) • Can be subscribed to through something called RSS (Really Simple Syndication) • Is listened to or watched on a computer or mp3 player

  3. A podcast (continued): • Can be a “traditional” radio program or media broadcast, but can be specialized for whatever purpose you want (entertainment, education, etc.) • Allows anyone with access to podcasting tools to spread their message to anyone else on the Internet

  4. Why should I podcast? • It’s relatively cheap to create them • It’s something that can be accessed anytime and anywhere you have an Internet connection • Everyone’s doing it, so I should do it too :-) (but seriously, many people including students use iPods and other mp3 players, so why not try to use them educationally?)

  5. Some things to keep in mind: • What is the content? What message or concept am I trying to get across? • What is my instructional goal? • What is the context for podcasting? How does this relate to other things I’m teaching?

  6. More things to keep in mind: • Try to plan your podcasts as much as possible (scripting or storyboarding really helps) • Make the podcast as short as you can. If it starts getting long, consider making chapters • Make it interesting and high-energy

  7. Reference Links • Please note: this is the Internet, so I can’t vouch that these are “the definitive” links for reference (or if they’ll exist that long, so you may find better ones yourself :-) • Podcast. (n.d.). Retrieved May 15, 2007 from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast
