On Monday, 10/15/07, my district scheduled a professional development day based on content area. There were over 100 science teachers in attendance. Of the breakout sessions that were available, over 50% were based on techology. I was particularly excited to see that over 60% of the participants came to a session on Podcasts that I presented. During this session, we learned what a podcast was (many had never even heard the term). We also spent time learning how to download podcasts. Finally, there was a discussion on how to create podcasts along with district policy regarding the posting of student created podcasts.
