Thing 14

Podcasting a great way to get your voice out there. There are also a
wide variety of ways to podcast. You can do everything from setting an
account where you just call in from a phone (although these are
sometimes blocked from a district-you'd need to set it up somewhere
else first). That makes it extremely easy to podcast. All you do is
call a number, punch a couple of numbers as prompted, and then talk.
Everything else is done automatically.
You can also use Audacity to
record your podcast on a computer (it's cross platform and free). If
you have a Mac, GarageBand is a great way to go.
If you really like
control, you can buy a domain and run everything yourself. That takes a
little bit of knowledge and a little bit of cash.
Our district supports podcasting by including some free tools to help teachers make and post them.
Like many other things, time and professional development is an issue in implementing podcasts.
