This session explores examples of successful classroom podcasts and demonstrates how teachers can start their own classroom podcast.. We’ll use the open-source and cross-platform (PC and Mac) software Audacity and podOmatic. Additionally, we’ll explore how to create PodGuides. A PodGuide is a combination of a map (PDF or JPG) of a certain place with numbered dots on it and a series of audio tracks (mp3) which you can download for your iPod. Think of an audio tour in a museum, but not limited to just that. Gain the know-how that will have you and your students podcasting next week!

21st Century Blended Learning Environment

When we think of blended learning, we often think of the current models for e-learning that blend both live and self-paced learning events. A well-designed blended learning course offers students a variety of activities that are often enhanced by multimedia applications, synchronous content delivery, asynchronous learning experiences, group collaboration and meaningful assessment. Many of the tools and technology that make e-learning so versatile can also be utilized within a traditional classroom to enhance student learning. Given the right opportunities and the right technology, every teacher can transform the learning environment, motivate students to learn and ultimately raise student achievement. Discussion will focus on tools for empowering teachers and administrators within the walls of the 21st century school environment as well as beyond the walls with some content available 24/7.
