This video shows how podcasting can encourage student to become more interactive with each other using technology.

Eagle Nest Radio

These children are learning and having fun at the same time. This podcast proved that! They take what the teacher has taught them,and act it out in front of the camera. Not only did they retain the information needed, they learned while having fun. And might I add, they were very good actors if I must say so myself. These children got to take advantage of technology in the classroom. Hopefully one day, in my teaching career, I will be able to take advantage of technology just like this teacher did.

  1. I couldn't believe how many uses there were for an iPod. I've had an iPod for about two years now, and I'm just now discovering the usefulness of it!
    I was quite impressed with the Eagle Nest radio. Those kids are lucky to discover the usefulness of blogging so early on. Great post!

  2. I love the kids of Eagle Nest. I hope these assignments helped you with your podcast.
