Ways into organising your class for podcasting.

Podcasting as a whole class activity John Sutton ICT Consultant working at Chorlton Park Primary School

1. Focus on skills Software skills How to record, edit, etc... (Hint, pre-record a short piece with obvious coughs, pauses etc) Questioning skills Open and closed questions (Each group record one or two examples and post on blog for peer feedback) Script writing skills Displaying awareness of audience (Record examples for feedback – do they work? Is there a difference between writing, and writing to be read aloud) Presenting skills It’s not about the silly voice! (How do you make it sound like you are not reading a script?) Work on the above, recording in small groups, then loads of peer review
