Audacity — New Technolgy

Audacity is a free and easy to use audio recorder and editor. Using Audacity, students can create podcasts based upon readings. Teachers are able to give directions for the podcasts that are based on the various levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. For example, they can be placed in small groups and create a digital story. The teacher can ask them to make predictions, vary the ending of the story and even explain the ramifications of the various endings.

Podcasts

 

I listened to two principals who have a series of podcasts. Scott Elias and Melinda Miller have never met but they have developed multiple podcasts together. Milinda is an elementary principal and Scott is an assistant principal. In the podcast that I listened to, they reviewed twenty two different technology tools  that they use and like. They mentioned Twitter, Skype, Video and Audio Chat and their favorite is the IPhone.

The description of the multiple uses of Skype was new to me.

RSS

This enables a teacher to be able to share blog ideas with other teachers that have the same interests in education. RSS makes it easy to follow other teachers when they come up with new ideas. It could increase a teacher’s knowledge of a topic easily, quickly and exponentially. I subscribed to Bloglines.
