Hello Everyone!

I wonder if you can help me out?

I am going to be presenting at an ed tech conference next week, discussing my use of teacher created podcasts and screencasts or "masterycasts" and how they have impacted my classroom. I am going to be showing teachers how they can do the same, using their students iPods and mp3 players as teaching tools.

I am looking for other examples to show them! Please share what you have created to help kids, or the work of others you have seen as well. I know I am not the only teacher out there doing this! I am interested in resources and examples running from sites, ITunes (or similar aggregators), or other audio/video use of players of any type assisting learning.

How are educators using audio/video, iPods, and mp3's as teaching and learning tools?

Thanks for your help!

How cool is that? You may have read this about me on another discussion but my technology "passion" came from a single photograph activity explained by Jamie McKenzie years ago at a Classroom Connect or NECC conference. I said "wow, is that cool" and have een hooked ever since. IMHO, gimmicks can step aside, I think the best thing about the Internet is the availability of primary source documents. (hyperbole)
I've recently been creating online videos to help my students and other educators. Most of my stuff can be found at http://falconphysics.blip.tv

My current model is to create video lectures that students can use to review past lessons or as a replacement for in-class lecture, allowing me more time for labs (I teach science). Lecture replacements are accompanied by short online assessments created using Google Forms. This way I can see what they got and what they missed from my lectures and I know better what I need to re-cover during class. The idea is to make the limited amount of face to face time more efficient.
Thanks so much. It is just what I am looking for.

Don't forget to check the "podcasting" tag link over to the right... http://www.classroom20.com/forum/topic/listForTag?tag=podcasting.
You might want to check out gabcast.com for creating podcasts from your phone.

I currently have pod casts by 1st grade, 2nd grade , 6th grade and 8th grade posted on my wiki.

Links to the Sketch up Movie Makers videos are Here

the 8th graders podcasts are here

Biomes powerpoints are available here

These are all current examples of my students work- I post for around 6 weeks-and pull off and replace with new projects
K12 Online is a wonderful source for Professional Development - all teacher-created podcasts online and free.
I use a Gabcast channel for Spanish homework. I ask learners to listen to a 15min podcast called Coffeebreak Spanish. Then learners call in answers to a prompt using any phone to Gabcast. I have subscribed to the Gabcast channel and collect homework in my RSS reader. Learners enjoy using iPods and cellphones in our classroom, esp since other teachers do not allow these devices at all.
Lastly Wes Fryer has a wonderful wiki resource on Cell Phones for Learning.
Hi!
Your conference has passed-but I wanted to say thanks for presenting podcasting.
I created podcasts all summer on my travels-and I had a ball!
My students will be creating podcasts this coming school year in AP US History, Econ Honors,
Florida History and for the "Historians Club"
(The club documents and archives the history of my school)
I'm looking forward to learning more and implementing this in my classes.
peace-
Connie
ps
we will have an ipod lab to use at my school
Thanks! That's awesome Connie. I actually won an award from NYSCATE for my work; it is great to know that it is being recognized. I have updated my website and added more content as well along with a new podcast on "podcasting" and using hand helds, called MasteryCast Chat. My site is www.masterymaze.com. You also might want to join the NING group I started as well. www.ipodeducators.ning.com. I would love to know how your lab works out! I hope you can share your experiences with us there as well.

My students did their first podcasts last spring.

You can get to their podcasts by going to my class site: http://readerswriters.edublogs.org and clicking on the Podcasts! page. The latest episode was a test recording by me. Scroll down to listen to episodes posted by students. Click the green arrow next to the name.

If you are an NPR follower, this podcast idea is based on their series, "This I Believe." A google search will give you more info about the This I Believe essays.
Hey, just wanted to say "hey" to another alum. No only did my husband and I graduate from KU but we had sons at KU for 12 years. (Different sons for different lengths of time!)
Hi! I started at another university, but ended up getting my 3 degrees from KU, I lived in Lawrence for 10 years and I NEVER thought I would leave ... but, life happens.
