    I took a technology seminar last summer, and this is one of the resources I found particularly helpful. It is just a list of different technologies, but I like the variety.

A social constructivist approach to the use of podcasts - 0 views

  • The project discussed in this case study followed an action research framework within the context of a Foundation Degree in e-learning at the University of Huddersfield. Podcasts were used to support the delivery of a module on the use of Web 2.0 technologies in Education. The aim was to explore whether, in this context, podcasting could be an effective component of online learning. In particular, the project asked: Do students like listening to educational podcasts? Do students learn from using podcasts?
  • Conclusions The following recommendations on the use of podcasts in teaching and learning have been drawn from the findings of the study; ensure pace, style, content and length of podcasts consider guidelines based on the research of Cebeci and Tekdal (2006) and of Kallinen and Rajava (2005): Podcasts should be less than 15 minutes. long Recordings should be logically sequenced. Speech should be interspersed with music. Content should be placed in the context of the course of study and of the learner’s own working practice. Pace of speech should be approximately 143 words per minute. Ensure that audio content forms part of a wider range of learning activities that allow students to process, discuss and apply what they have heard and to gain formative feedback on their responses. Recommend that students undertake cognitive activity whilst listening to the podcasted material but take account of the type and level of learner in deciding upon the form this activity should take. Lower level learners might appreciate structured activities which higher level learners might find inhibiting. Inclusion of audio content may help students to retain information more effectively than purely text-based delivery. Provide appropriate metadata for podcast episodes to allow learners to glean the essentials and assess the relevance and content of the episode before they listen to the whole thing.

    I love this website for online teaching if you have to present a lot of content. I also use it if I have a lot of students who are going to be absent for a particular lecture. This site allows you to upload lecture motes of some kind, and then narrate those notes. Additionally, people you invite to view your presentation can make comments or ask questions within each individual slide. It's a fantastic tool for asynchronous teaching.

    Great site for interacting asynchronously in many forms.

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0

    Audacity is an awesome (and free) tool for basic recording, editing, and playback. I use it to record my choral rehearsals, record individual singers during private lessons, and create practice tracks that can be posted online so students can learn and/or reinforce their part in a piece of music we are rehearsing in class. The interface is relatively simple and the options for the music classroom (or even the general education classroom) are numerous!
