Bringing Podcasting to Teachers and School Classrooms Across the Globe
September 08, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News(Seattle, WA) “Podcasting is surely becoming another tool that helps teachers make learning more fun and relevant to their students," says John Phillips, a first year teacher in Washington State. “And ePodcast Producer is at the heart of my middle school elective based on podcasting.” This year, Industrial Audio Software is helping bring podcasting to teachers like Phillips across the country. Podcasting, a type of audio blogging, is a way of creating radio style programming and then “broadcasting” this content across the internet. It is considered by many to be today’s fastest growing communication technology. Students, teachers, districts, and schools are all finding new ways to incorporate podcasting into their programs, curriculum, and lesson plans.
Podcasting is being used to share students’ special projects and events such as oral histories, chorus and band concerts, and classroom panel discussions. School news programs can be sent to alumni and parents far away, and lectures and class content are made available outside of class. With all these applications and more, the ePodcast Series from Industrial Audio Software offers the only completely integrated podcasting solution. Critics agree. More importantly, so do teachers.
To encourage the work of teachers such as Phillips, IAS is offering a 10% discount for educators and educational institutions. This discount is one more way of making podcasting available to every classroom teacher, school, and district. Completely integrated podcasting software systems, free online tutorials, built-in teleprompter, powerful editor, and now a special educator’s discount. With all these offerings, Industrial Audio Software continues to encourage creativity, understanding, and communication in classrooms everywhere. Phillips sums it up this way: “Now that I've experienced producing podcasts myself with this user-friendly program, I can't wait to teach the students how to use it and see them bring their own creativity into it!”
