Podcasts

Podcasting can provide teachers and students with an exciting way to explore and discover the curriculum.  It is a great way for teachers to deliver their content to students, especially those who may have been absent or who may need to hear the lesson again. Students can go beyond traditional assignments by including voice recordings, photos, movies, and sound effects.  Teachers can even participate in professional development through a podcast.
