After reading the article ‘Podcasting 101 for K-12 Librarians’ (Eash, 2006). I have been inspired to use podcasts more regularly with students. I like the simple explanations of what podcasting is within the article and I really liked the various ideas the article provided. At the school that I work at, we always struggle to find student work samples that integrate technology, but the article has given me a wonderful idea – a podcast that takes the user on a tour around the school (Eash, 2006). I know many students would love to work creating this, and, as the article points out, podcasts are portable so doing things like school/library tours are entirely possible.
