I'm currently taking an online course on Podcasting and really want to implement podcasting into my curriculum this coming year. Anyone have any suggestions on getting started with 3rd graders?

Hi
A simple way to get kids podcasting might be a quick book review.
Or are you asking how to record and then host a podcast?
(very different questions, of course)

What is the online course like?

Peace,
Kevin

Check out the Grandview Library Blog (http://www.grandviewlibrary.org/). The library media specialist there is awesome and she has primary level students podcasting throughout the year.

Kevin, Thanks for the idea. I have the MP3 recorders or can record on my laptop. I still have to download Audacity. The course is informative, though we're only on week1.

Susan, Grandview is one of the links for our course. I really found it helpful. Thank you.

Sylvia, I look forward to checking out Learning in hand. Thanks for the tip.

Linda:

Since we can't "tag" blog posts here yet, just forum posts, I'd like to copy your conversation here to the forum so that it can be found by later users by clicking on "podcasting" in the list to the right. If you'll agree, we can move it over and hopefully get the discussion to continue there... :)

Sure Steve. Thank you for thinking about that. I'm so new at blogging that I didn't even think about checking the forum. Please move it over and I'll keep checking there for helpful hints.

Looks like you got many ideas already. I podcast 3rd graders reading books - short ones! They practice first, so the podcast is a rereading for them, increasing fluency.

Sylvia, Thanks for the website. We are actually using that one in our class. It is a good one.

Durff, I like the idea of reading short books for fluency. I think I will be including that as part of my podcasts. It will be a great filler if we need it. And I know the students' fluency will increase. Thank you for the idea.
