Podcasts

This article about podcasts reminds me of the book we read at the beginning of the semester because it talks about how podcasts are a great way for students to share their work with the world instead of just passing in an assignment for a teacher to grade and then nothing else ever being made of it. I agree that student’s will be more motivated to put time and effort into their work if they know it is going to be shared with the world. This article also discusses how activities such as podcasting engage students in more “real life” work that teaches them how to create and share their knowledge with others.
