This podcast is a collection of recorded audio from a workshop shared with teachers in Gadsden City Schools, Alabama, on June 10, 2009. In the workshop, teachers learned how to use a Sony UX-70 mp3 digital audio recorder to record audio in an oral history interview. Teachers also learned how to use free Audacity software to do some basic audio editing of their recording: selecting different clips of audio, deleting selections, splitting selections into new tracks, moving tracks to different places in the recording, importing background music, adjusting the audio level so it does not overwhelm the narration, and exporting the finished, edited audio file as a WAV or MP3 file. Teachers were introduced to the free website SlideShare, which can be used to upload PowerPoint and other multimedia presentation files that are synchronized to recorded audio. Following our workshop, I interviewed Eric Lee, who is an educational technology professional development specialist with the “Technology In Motion” project of the Alambama State Department of Education. This podcast concludes with a brief overview of some excellent educational application for the iPod Touch (iTouch) as well as the procedures for subscribing to free podcasts on the iTunes Store.
