Podcast Collection By: Judy Scharf

     The first website I looked at was Podcast Collection.  It  is a very good website to look at before starting your own podcast.  It gives you some tips on how to make you a podcast successfully.  This is the first thing to look at before starting you podcast.  The most important tip listed, in my opinion, is to allow plenty of time to complete the project.  Besides the tips, this website has topics that include:  Time Schedule for Creating a Podcast,  Suggestions for Podcast Projects, Suggestions for Researching Your Topic, Creating Your Podcast, Using Podbean, Submitting Your Podcast to Itunes, Podcast Grading Sheet, Podcast Rubric, Exemplary Podcast #1, Exemplary Podcast #2, Census Sample, and Number of Siblings.  In conclusion , this website is very helpful for doing your own podcast or if your a teacher a good resource to use in you classroom.

Eagles' Nest Radio & Class Blog

    I decided to take a look at the Eagles' Nest Radio & Class Blog to see how teachers use Podcasting in their classrooms.  I listened to Episode #3 Roamin' with the Ancient Romans.  This was and informative Podcast on the Ancient Romans.  The students sound like they were having fun with this Podcast and had it set up as a newscast, which is very creative.  After listening to this Podcast, it had me thinking about ways it can be incorporated into the classroom and a lesson plan.


  1. I enjoyed reading about your thoughts on what you read about podcasting. I think that podcasting in the classroom is a great learning tool. I also thought that the kids sounded like they were having fun. I also read on the one of the sites that a teacher would podcast their lesson so that if a child wanted to study extra or missed class, they would have the lesson plan right there. I thought that was a great idea and I hope to incorporate that into my classroom. I wish you the best of luck at
    South and in your future as a teacher.

  2. I am delighted that you are including links. Now turn that text into working buttons. It looks better I think. And it can be more informative.

    Thorough. Thoughtful. Well done.
