Podcasting & Blogs in Education

Thursday, November 04, 2004
As some of you may have noticed, my first (test) podcast hit the datastream a few days ago. I have no particular desire to make a lot of podcasts, but I am pleased at how easy it is to set up. My biggest interest in terms of podcasting is the potential educational uses, so it is with some excitement that I read Derek's blog and discovered that someone has already established a podcasting in education website called EduPodder.com which comes complete with its own blog written by Steve Sloan.

Also, Sharon, part of Under the Sun, points to an excellent article by Stephen Downes in Educase Review 39.5 (2004) called "Education Blogging" which looks at blogging in all facets of education from primary to tertiary. The most useful part for me, though, was a very useful review of the various blogging platforms in terms of their educational utility. There are some other interesting articles in the same volume, including Brian Lamb's "Wide Open Spaces: Wikis, Ready or Not" and Joel Forman's "Game-Based Learning:How to Delight and Instruct in the 21st Century".
