Audacity for Podcasting

One sample Book Talk: Life is a Highway

software used: Audacity

Description: Pod casting (an audio broadcast)


Other Podcasting Web Apps for Younger Students



This is an extremely basic way to record a podcast (something for grades K-3). After the podcast has been recorded, it can be downloaded as an MP3. The MP3 file can be then added to the school website, your PBWorks wiki, a newsletter, a blog, or emailed to parents.

This tool does not allow music to be added separately. The only option for music is to have it playing quietly in the background.




Audioboo is a mobile & web platform that effortlessly allows you to record and share audio for your friends, family or the rest of the world to hear. It is almost as easy as Vocaroo!

 This is a link to a wonderful grade 2 podcast. Click on this link (http://www.speedofcreativity.org/2008/10/12/a-2nd-grade-classroom-podcast/)

And then scroll down to the podcast and have a listen. – recorded with Pod-o-Matic

Read Write Think Printing Press


Choose from a newspaper, booklet, brochure and flyer. Easy to use.


Animoto in Education

Idea: Autobiographical Videos: The first weeks of school are when both students and teachers get to know each other. To help everyone introduce themselves, try using short videos created on Animoto for Education (http://animoto.com/education). Have students select eight to ten images that are important to them or represent things that they are excited about. Let them select the music that matches the message they want to send to the class about themselves within the program. Don't forget to create a video about yourself. When all of the videos are ready, have a little viewing party in your classroom.

Animoto can be used for all subjects.



Visual Ranking


This tool is an Intel tool. Create a teacher workspace, and a list of items for ranking, critiquing, reasoning, explaining and justifying (all higher-order Bloom's Taxonomy). It is a great one!



Kids love this! Voki (http://www.voki.com/) is a great tool forso many things. Create your own avatar, add voice and post to any blog or website. The site also includes some lesson plans.

 Here is an example of how to use Voki as a book talk: http://www.voki.com/pickup.php?scid=6429954&height=267&width=200
