Creating, editing and publishing audio is increasingly becoming a meaningful skill and ability for students. As the medium of podcasting has become a popular method socially to share and consume new ideas and information, this technology can be harnessed by both educators and students. Join us for this one day, hands-on workshop that will explore the process of creating, editing and publishing audio for the classroom. From private, teacher created audio as an instructional tool, to student created podcasts that can be published for a global audience, we will explore podcasting from all perspectives. Whether your students are 1:1 or shared devices, use Chromebooks, iPads or a computer lab, this workshop is designed for all educators to attend and develop proficiency and comfort with audio and podcasting in the classroom.
