The Eagles Nest Radio Podcast
I really enjoyed the children's podcast. I find if funny that they did the podcast in the form of a radio network. I really enjoyed the music transitions and the fun facts about Rome. The kids facts were very knowledgable and I learned a great deal just from listening to them. This is a great form of research and interaction between the students.
100 Ways to Use your iPod to Learn and Study Better
This movie just added onto the iSchool initiative. It showed the many applicable resources in Apple's app store that can help tremendously with school. I really enjoyed the iPod in the classroom app. It seemed like a great idea for putting technology into the classroom. Technology opens so many resources to our children, it is our job to utilize them and provide a better education than we had.
The Benefits of Podcasting in the Classroom
Podcasting in the classroom could open doors to online education that people probably never thought was possible. Such as video examples of problems or assignments. Another great thing would be the video of the class period, in the case that a student was absent and asked the ever so popular question"What did I miss?". This is also great to help in collaborating with other teachers across the country about subject matter, tips, and strategies to use with students in the classroom.
