Any teachers using a microphone with a classroom audio system? if so, what's your experience? Good, bad or ugly!

The San Diego CUE Conference is Sat. Nov. 6th at El Cajon High School. There will be several workshops on using the iPod Touch. Go to http://www.sdcue.org

I am a first grade teacher and am interested in using an iPod in the classroom.

"What is the best practice to have all the ipods synced at the same time? Do you use the ipod cart? We don't have one."
20-40 iPods - We use the Bretford Syncing Cart
20 iPods - I like the idea of the ParaSync, though we have not tried it. The Bretford solution is not good for us, as you cannot easily charge overnight
7-14 iPods - try a USB hub - we use the The D-Link® 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub - but there are probably cheaper solutions

I am a college prof. from Ontario Canada. I have been Podcasting since 2001 and I also like webcasting and screencasting. I am looking forward to the discussions :)

Has anyone used the new nanogong audio recording applet for Moodle? I wonder if it can replace the use of Audacity at our 1:1 school. It has the added value of complete integration with Moodle incuding the Gradebook feature.

I just got a snowball camera from my students (hurray!) and wonder if anyone has instructions and/or lessons for podcasting w/Garage Band and/or Audacity that would be appropriate for 4th graders. Thank you.

Dear colleagues,

We are working on a project on how we can utilize Web 2.0, not only Social networking, in foreign language teaching. Your contributions, suggestions, and ideas are highly appreciated. I will keep you informed about the progress. Please let me know if you are interested.

Kind regards.

Is it okay to use Audacity to read books that students can listen to and follow along with. I am not sure about the copyright usage of such things. Since it is for educational purposes, isn't this ok? Also, if you are doing it for students with disabilities, it seems that it would fall under ADA or something by making it accessible to students with disabilities.
Of course it won't matter if I can't even get the program to work. It seems to be recording, but I can't get it to play so I have no idea if it's not recording or just not playing!!

A request to all you audio/web gurus..
I want to make a track from my playlist in my Classroom 2.0 page play when the page opens. How do I do that. I notice a few members have done that. Do I alter the embed code?
Any help there would be appreciated.
