As a potentially disruptive technology capable of constructively promoting transmediation, educators have both an opportunity and responsibility to embrace podcasting. Under certain circumstances, podcasting can fundamentally transform the perceptions of students about school, their roles in the learning process, and the value of their daily activities shared via podcasts with a global as well as local audience. In this session, we’ll explore transmediation (multimedia communication), disruptive versus sustaining technologies, and the need to help students be rich media producers rather than just consumers in the 21st century classroom.
