Podcast32E: Cultivating Digital Literacy Through Blogging and Podcasting

This is an enhanced podcast that can be played through iTunes, viewed as a webpage, or heard as a mp3 version (see the show notes.) 21st century literacy skills (or digital literacy skills) and the skills cultivated in a high-stakes testing classroom environment seem to be mutually exclusive. This session from TCEA 2006 explores how blogging and podcasting can be used to cultivate the digital literacy skills our students need for success today and tomorrow.
