First of all, I'm now going to have each pair source a short piece of music through Creative Commons and use Audacity to put together a title soundbite for their podcasts (is there some technical term for this?)
And some of my big ideas for next year:
- A weekly podcast discussion of content and topics we're looking at in class each week. I'm thinking of this especially for my senior English and History (fingers crossed) classes. I'm hoping to use it as a discussion starter, a way to deliver the content and free up some face-to-face time for other things.
- Student podcasting assignments for feedback and review, but also to publishing.
- Development of games/flashcards for iPods to help students learn terminology.
I'm sure there's plenty more things for me to consider doing with podcasting next year - what have I overlooked?
