Podcasts are very beneficial for projects or interactive group work. Podcasts are a great way to get students to interact with others through interviewing or story telling. Recording podcasts gives students an opportunity to get into role as a reporter, journalist, or public speaker. Podcasts can also be helpful from the teacher’s point of view. Teachers can record podcasts and provide to the class/ any absent students on major lesson points of the day. Podcasts can also be great for students during writing. Students can record their thoughts or ideas about a topic, and then listen to themselves and begin prewriting and organizing thoughts. This can be very beneficial for students who struggle with fine motor skills or are slow writers in general. This gives them the chance to get their writing started by just thinking out loud and talking to themselves.
