    I am interested in how many of you are podcasting. Do you podcst yourself or with others. Do you have your students podcast? I'd like to hear stories you may have including the good and the bad. If you are interested in being part of an educational podcast please let me know.

    Thanks so much!

    I'm a school improvement coach and I've just begun podcasting. None of my teachers are using them yet, but they all have interactive whiteboards, laptops, and all the technology they would need to begin. I'd be interested in knowing more about the educational podcast.

    Mike,

    I am new to diigo, and am looking to incorporate social bookmarking in my High School level classes.

    I came upon your post and thought I'd share my blog post Podcasting with Gcast (http://nooneknowsyet.edublogs.org/2008/11/15/podcasting-with-gcast/ ) I taught for ten years at the middle school level although moved to a CFF equipped room in our high school. I mmediately began podcasting and having my students podcast.

    The Good: Their skills and comfort level with producing podcasts is improving. Most students have a basic understanding of how to use audacity, and we've recently begun adding music. Our next step is to use the editing tools more effectively.

    The Bad: I was surprised at the level of apprehension on the part of some students. It is akin to an aversion to public speaking. Curiously, my sophomore class has been more willing to learn the skills of podcast whereas my seniors tend to show more reluctance.

    My podcasting of material has seen mixed results some students welcomed it, other students (seniors) just wanted me to "give them the notes" like all the other teachers.

    Hope that helps, and I'll be checking in to learn more from others.
