SEVERAL IRISH PODCASTERS got together today in The Clarence Hotel and discussed "sound education in your pocket". That's a conference topic at EdTech 2006 set for IT Sligo on 25-26 May. The Dublin coffee chat promises to evolve into a vidcast that will play on iTunes before the May conference which means the presentation will be generating international comments and questions as its Irish audience watches it for the first time in Sligo.
This collaborative presentation explains the pedagogical, social, and technological merits of podcasting in formal education in Ireland. The contributions will shape this presentation into a broad coverage of the current state of "Podcasting in Ireland" as well as an introduction to podcasting for listeners. The framework:
- 00:04 Intro
- 00:25 History of podcasting (BHG)
- 03:35 Consuming educational podcasts (students' and Culture Sluts' views) LB
- 06:40 producing educational podcasts (LB, MK and MC)
- 10:55 Educational psychology, social learning, tribes (GS)
- 13:00 Responding through Comment Casting (RB)
