Inspired again by Melbourne teacher Jo McLeay and her willingness to embrace new technologies in the classroom and share those authentic experiences. Her latest foray into web 2.0 learning is a series of podcasts called The Open Text, where she, and other teachers, discuss current texts as revision aids for classroom teachers. Simple, and really effective. Podcasts have been posted about texts like Gattaca, Henry Lawson and The Wife of Martin Guerre.
Podomatic looks like an interesting way to post podcasts too, taking a lot of the organizational work out of simply posting to a web site yourself and working out all that rss stuff. I’ve posted the last three Wozcasts to a podomatic site I set up and if it looks stable and works consistently, that might where all my future podcasts will be located.
