My son and I created a short, almost fourteen minute podcast this evening about Albert Einstein which we titled, “Einsteinâ€™s Contributions and Interesting Quirks.” We posted this to the Talking Science podcasting project. As of yet we have not received any additional submissions to this podcasting project– I haven’t spent a great deal of time promoting this, but if you’re looking for a place to post one or more links to audio podcasts featuring students talking about their scientific investigations, questions or research, feel free to join the podcast blog site and submit your links. If you have questions about this process, don’t hesitate to contact me for assistance.
It is really important we invite students to “retell” their understanding of topics they are formally studying in school, to further reveal and expand their knowledge as well as develop their communication skills. The process of retelling reveals connections students have made with content knowledge and other ideas. It is also very important to encourage students to go beyond the knowledge/comprehension level of Bloom’s taxonomy and tackle questions that invite analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. We tried to model these goals in this podcast.
