Podcasting and Vodcasting in the Classroon

Did you ever think of broadcasting your lessons for more students to hear you? How about archiving past lectures for students to use for their studies? This group is interested in podcasts and vodcasts.

I am a high school Spanish teacher.  I have started to dabble in flipping my classroom.  Do you know of any other Spanish teachers that do this?  Or other WL teachers?  I think that this is helping…Continue

I have been wondering if it would be beneficial for me to create short podcasts of some of our math lessons in order for parents to see what I am trying to get their children to understand.  An…Continue

Math lessons would be more effective through vodcasting rather than podcasting.  I would recommend getting an IPEVO Point2View Document Camera.  The best option is the one that's about $70-$80.  Use it with Camtasia or something similar to make your vodcasts.

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

I sincerely apologize if any of you are receiving this message more than once. We are trying to reach as many teachers/students as possible around the world. It's possible that you're a member of more than one of the groups I have joined. My apologies!

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is:

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

You might want to check out this vodcasting Ning and These were started by two HS chemistry teachers (Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams) in Colorado. They give some great tips and examples on how vodcasting can be used effectively in any classroom.

Get Community Clips Free from Microsoft and video anything you do on your labtop. There are some examples on this too. I've had students use this for projects.

Math could be better illustrated through a vodcast. You can use animation from Power Point, for example, to get your lessons across in an interesting display :=)

Depending on how your district is with iPods, they are a GREAT podcast catcher for your lessons- you can produce them, post them, and if your students are subcribed to you RSS, then it will automatically get sent righ to them!

Do you have a spending problem?

Shopaholics do not agree to the fact that they are shopaholics until and unless they are forced to agree that they are affected by the addiction of shopping, and they need to do seriously something about it so that they do not waste their entire savings and cry about it on a later date. In this post, we will help you spot the problem and if you spot the issue, go ahead and look for a remedy so that you get enough time to be at ease in the future. 1.    Your credit card balance is always close…See More

"I am the greatest"

I was 6 when I decided I wanted to be a PE teacher. A lively child, I loved taking part in any kind of sporting activity. It was 1971 when I set eyes on our new track suited next-door neighbour. I was hooked. I wanted to be like her. I wanted to go to work in a tracksuit and trainers and play sport all day. No amount of persuasion or…See More

The policy makers have realised the essence of educating the underserved to lower or eradicate the poverty. The need to provide skill development oriented education tops the priority so that the learner from the poor background can land themselves to the desired jobs. But traditional…See More
