Thing 19 - Podcasting and Conclusion

I like that you can listen to podcasts and be working on other things at the same time. This seems like a time-saver. Our Media Specialist has been experimenting a little with podcasts. He is thinking about having students podcast book reviews and then posting them onto our web-site. I think that is really neat idea! I can also see podcasting to enhance multi-media types of presentations for classroom assignments. I appreciate the training aspect of podcasts, and along with instructional handouts, maybe we should do a corresponding podcast of instructions for tasks like creating a brochure in Microsoft Word, how to make a picture the background to a slide in Microsoft PowerPoint, etc. Even though this Thing took me a while, I enjoyed what I have learned and look forward to thinking about more ways we could incorporate podcasting into our library environment.

That's enough "23 Thinging" for one day, it's off to bed for me. Hopefully, I'll finish my last 4 Things in the next couple of days!
