Last night I finished chapter 4 in Teaching in the Digital Age and it was entitled: Use Audio Recordings to Capture Powerful Moments
I thought it would be appropriate to create a podcast with my reflections on chapter 4. I have used podcasts in the past but now have some more ideas on how I can effectively use audio recordings in a developmentally appropriate manner in my JK/SK class.
It took me a bit to figure out how to add an audio file but I managed to get to work. Another new skill!
The linky for the Book blog party and a summary on chapter 4 can be found over at Teach Preschool.
I have been thinking for a year about setting up my listening centre and by the end of the year I had enough points on my scholastic account to purchase the traditional set up but now I think I am glad I didn’t. I think it would be a wiser decision to figure out a way to get an iPod touch into the class. It will be easier for students to use, take up less space, and be much more conducive for sharing audio recordings we make in class. Another item to add to my wish list!
