    ...
    As a child I used to love making ‘shows’ and presenting things in 'colorful' and interactive ways. Sound is such a great medium, and there are so many interesting auditory environments that can be created with sound alone. Using sound alone also focuses a student's attention, especially if they have headphones on. Of course, if students add the video component to their Podcasts, they can use even more creativity.
    I can see what fun and learning a child in school would have making a Podcast. I’ve seen the 9 and 10 year olds I teach play with PowerPoint. It’s really ridiculous how easily they use it, and how entertaining they think it is. I think it would be the same with Podcasting.

    The successes of Podcasts and Podcasting are many. The Apple Website shares many ideas.
    Here are some specific ideas that I liked a lot: #1 idea for Struggling readers (page 27 in the Getting Started Guide listed above/under the heading, Building Reading Fluency) Could a child who is struggling with reading imagine himself/herself as a fluent reader? Yes! They can do more than that. They can actually hear how they would sound if they could read fluently.

    For reasons described above, today’s learners, the Millennials, and Digital Natives both, are listening more frequently to Podcasts. The digital natives use the iPod effortlessly, but you see many older millennials jogging through the streets listening to their iPods also. Educators are finding many uses for using Podcasting and Podcasts in the classroom.
    Apple has a fabulous Web Site for understanding and operating the iPod with iTunes, and with a PC or Mac computer. It’s filled with directions, educational ideas, and third party sources. I will describe a few things of interest on this Wiki, but for further information please go to, “Getting Started: A Guide for using iPod and iTunes for teaching and learning,” at http://images.apple.com/education/products/ipod/iPod_Getting_Started_Guide.pdf

    Making a Podcast
    Link back to the Podcast page.
    Part I
    You’re going to need a platform in which to play your finished Podcast. Did you know that you don’t need an iPod or a different brand of MP3 player to hear your Podcast? You can listen to it on your computer. If I were you, I would sign up for iTunes if you're going to want to put your Podcast onto your iPod, OR if you want a place to store your Podcast so you can play it on your own computer's hard drive. On iTunes, there’s a lot of support in terms of tutorials, and there are plenty of 19 year olds (and younger) to ask how to use it.
