Web 2:0…so you and your students want to be Podcasters

Presented by Chris Smith

Making and producing Podcasts has become the “flavour of the month” for many teachers and students, but ironically, audio resources have been around for a long time. New technologies and the internet have made it easier to record and edit audio and also to distribute it to a worldwide audience. This session will go through the process of making a Podcast and also look at some of the uses in teaching and learning.

Podcasts are really very simple (once you have been shown) ... they are audio (sometimes video) recordings that are put on the internet and have the potential to be brilliant resources to use with students and by students.
Will we go through the whole process of making an audio Podcast and then putting it on a website so it can be listened to by anyone in the world with an internet connection.

If you have time before the workshop then have a browse around and

For maths/physics teachers, Ian Stewart has created a great series of audio podcasts on the history of symmetry. They are about 10-15 minutes and issued through the university of Warwick, Uk. Some good history of maths, as well as introducing students to the concept that new maths is being created all the time and that mathematics is not simply arithmetic! Another good one is a video lecture from Imperial college London, UK, called finding moonshine: a mathematician's journey through symmetry. Hope they are helpful! Lucy (PTIS)
