Podcasting 101

At this week's faculty meeting, Mr. Stein and I had the opportunity to present a podcast about podcasting. What is podcasting, you ask? Click on the video podcast below to get a brief glimpse at what podcasting is all about and how it can be applied in the classroom!

Why are we talking about podcasting? Next semester in Mr. Stein's Participation in Government class, groups of students will have the opportunity to produce their very own video podcasts for a project on activism. Each group will research a non-profit activist group, produce a public service announcement, create a video podcast, and present it to their peers. Mr. Patten's class has also produced their own audio podcasts for the "Pirates Presidential Campaign" and you can check them out on his website.
