We have to get in the mindset of kids teaching

podcasting is syndicated, homegrown audio
– this is not just the creation of audio content
– idea is a regular show

This is not just for iPods, hundreds of student podcasts are out there

iTunes seems to be the best index of podcasts that are out there now

Radio Willowweb is a good example

David Warlick’s EPN is Education Podcast Network is place you can post your podcast for free supports direct audio recording through the web

Screencasting toolbox
– computer, camtasia (about $200 educational) or windows media encoder (free from MS) or SnapZ Pro

Key is putting these tools in the hands of kids so they can TEACH

we can learn a lot from our kids!
