This iPad-edited podcast includes a 25 minute excerpt of the keynote address at the TechnoPalooza 2012 educational technology conference in Northwest ISD, held on July 24, 2012. In this excerpt, 8 year old Rachel Fryer shares about her experiences with Scratch software this summer in Scratch Camp. In addition, she tells some stories about how she co-created the eBook “Snowflake Gets Lost” last year in second grade, and demonstrates how she created an enhanced/multimedia eBook during “iPad Media Camp” this summer using the apps Story Patch and Book Creator. This is the first audio podcast I’ve attempted to create entirely on an iPad, using the free Hokusai Audio Editor along with other apps. Refer to the podcast shownotes for more information about other apps used, as well as websites Rachel referenced in her presentation. I’ll write a post soon detailing my lessons learned trying to create a multi-track audio podcast entirely on an iPad.
