Given the recent rise in the popularity of podcasts and web-radios, it’s no surprise that audio narratives are making their way into the classroom. They offer an engaging way for teachers to educate students about new information and communication technologies merging project-based learning with digital media analysis and production skills.
This course will present podcasts as a technological tool to make audio or video content regularly accessible online, hence provide the participants with the relevant knowledge to prepare educational web radio Episodes, and start a web radio program in their classes.
Morevoer, building an archive of recordings is awesome but sharing them with a community is even better! It gives valuable insight into what pupils are doing in your school, letting parents feel more intimate with their child’s education and showcasing your prospectives. Thus, the course will prompt participants to see the benefits of starting a web radio program not only in their classes but in their schools.
Consider how a classroom or school podcast radio station may promote the following:
-Self-confidence: Not everyone is great at being in front of the camera. A radio can be far less intimidating and help building confidence speaking in public speaking even for kids who may be stifled by the camera.
-Speaking & Listening: Radio can be a fantastic tool for developing these skills.
-Inclusion: Radio is a tool for communication. Having a radio run by pupils, for pupils and a wider community, can help build an air of inclusion around the school.
-Teamwork: Running a school radio will require dedication and teamwork — valuable traits for pupils to learn at school!
-Student Voice: The school radio can be a perfect place to create that forum where pupils can have opinions and a say on their education.
In the course, we will define the concept of a Podcast, detailing its qualities and characteristics and the ways this technological option can be implemented in the context of the class to offer a flexible, innovative and motivating alternative to teachers. Participant will work individually and in teams to realize how to walk their students through the process of analyzing the techniques that make for good storytelling, interviewing and podcasting, and finally have them produce their own original podcasts.
A note for those teachers who may be technophobes: please don’t be intimidated by this technology-dependent lesson! Programs for audio editing are intuitive and easy-to-use, especially for many students. If you are a novice to audio recording, you may want to attempt to create your own one-minute podcast as a way to experience firsthand what students will encounter during the process.
