EDM 310 entry 4

Pod casting in the classroom

In the an it introduced an effective way of interacting with students outside of the classroom. It is a great way to be able to listen to lectures anytime and anywhere. It is a form of learning for students of today who are familiar with technology and therefore makes it relevant to them. It allows for differentiation and project based learning students who can access the higher order thinking skills in Bloom's taxonomy.
Vod casting is easy for reviewing rather than teaching the subject over again. It also allows students to demonstrate higher order thinking skills. It promotes creativity and innovation it can offer distance learning opportunities for absent students. The process of creating and uploading audio files is easy students can record role plays in character making their learning more memorable and parents can see and hear what their children are doing at school.
I think Vod casting is needed in every classroom. It allows parents to see what their children are doing in the class. I think it would be a big help with the disciplinary problems in the classes. When the teachers send letters home and the students deny what the teacher says, they can return back to the videos.


  1. I agree with what you are saying about the podcasts. I think that it really does allow children to be creative, and it gives them different ways to learn rather than the whole "book and lecture" thing. I think that any student will learn better if you can play with their imagination and keep them interested in what you are teaching about.

  2. We should be using any tool that really contributes to enhancing creativity in our students. Now take advantage of your opportunity to be creative in your podcast!

  3. You are late with your Fe. 14 post and other posts as well. You CANNOT afford to get behind in this class. Catch up! Now! While you still can. And STAY caught up!

  4. I agree...It's a very helpful tool.
