Oral language - Podcasting Literature Review

This year I have been researching the question "In what ways does podcasting enhance oral literacies?" I am using this podcast to present the information as I am finding it. This is the second part in this series. This podcast is the literature review I wrote looking for intersections between the literature on oral language and that on podcasting. It is a difficult task recording a literature review and doing the quotes justice. The finished written report will be available from my Efellow blogsite: http://www.efellows.org.nz/?q=blog/27 in January 2008. Please download a copy for the reference list to this literature review.

Oral language - Podcasting Literature Review

Introduction to the research

This year I have been fortunate to be released from the classroom to research the benefits of using podcasting to enhance oral literacies in the classroom. I have finally finished gathering all my data and am starting to pull all the pieces together. As a way to disseminate my findings, I am podcasting my finished report on this site. This is the introductory chapter outlining my posit ion and the reason for the project. More of the project will be podcast over the coming months.

Introduction to the research

What is this thing called podcasting?

This term I have been working with a group of students to gather data for my research project on podcasting. I have made a mash up of the final podcasts these students made for me and posted it here for you. The assignment I gave the students was 'tell the world what this podcasting thing is, and why you like doing it'. Please head over to their podcast page and leave them a comment on how well they have done at http://www.room5.podomatic.com. I have finished gathering data for my project now and the next term will be spent interpretting my findings. I will post further podcasts as I do.

Scripted versus Live

In the forums at the Time 4 Online NZ Conference ( http://time4online.org.nz ) Sarah asked me a question about my podcasting presentation. I thought it would be kinda cool to post both Sarah's question and my answer here as a podcast. Sarah's question was along the lines of do I think there is more learning involved in a scripted podcast than an 'off the cuff' podcast, but have a listen to Sarah ask the question herself... What do you think? Do you agree with my answer?

Podcasting in Primary Classrooms - Straight from the trenches

In my position as an ICT Facilitator and even more so now that I am spending a year researching podcasts in the classroom, I get to listen to a good many different classroom podcasts. I thought that it would be a good idea to present some of these podcasts in a review to help teachers who are wanting to have a go at podcasting have a starting point. The podcasts that I review in this episode are all primary (elementary) schools: KPE: http://tinyurl.com/2goqhn Small Voices: http://kinderteacher.podomatic.com Rowland: http://rowland.podomatic.com Andersen's: http://adonnell.podcast.com Cefn Fforest: http://cefnfforest.podomatic.com Appleby Showcase: http://allanah.podomatic.com Pine Hill School: http://room5.podomatic.com

Early Childhood Educators leading the way!

Today I had the privilege of working with a group of early childhood educators on the topic of podcasting. It was exciting to see a group of teachers eager to start the podcasting and technology journey with their students, even though those students could possibly range in age from 2 years to 4 years old! In this episode you will hear the goals these educators have set for themselves to start on this ICT journey.

Buddy Class Wanted

Hi all I am looking for a class to be our 'podcasting buddies' for term two this year (23rd April to 29th June). My students are year 5/6 which makes them between 9 and 10 years old. I would like to explore ways of using enhanced podcasts to explain our culture to students of another culture. I was thinking of starting with having the students create a still image story about their school life and then seeing how the unit progressed. The students will have contact with their buddy class through posting podcasts and making comments on each other's podcasts. So if you are new to podcasting or a podcasting 'oldie' drop me a line and we can plan this unit together. email: jane@pinehill.schoolzone.net.nz skype: janenicholls1 (in New Zealand) Looking forward to making connections :-)

Technology use in home versus school

I have been listening to a lot of podcasts lately that have been talking about the disparity between the use of technology at home versus school. Students are doing things at home on their computers that they are not able to do at school. With the whole debate about myspace and ethical use of technology it is vital that we empower our students in the use of technology in as many ways as we can. David Warlick mentioned in a keynote I attended that students are beginning to think of all things as 'clickable' even their parents. This resonated with me as I thought of what that really meant. Students are beginning to get used to having power. Power to find out what they want at the click of a button. I'm used to that power. If I want to know I find out. If students want to do something or find something out at home they 'click'. If they want to find out something at school they ask the teacher who may or may not know but they are not given that freedom to continue 'clicking' until they ...
