Fireside Chats

In our digital world we are constantly exposed to media. But why not use this media to give your students a voice, even bring back the days of "Fireside Chats." Show your teachers how, with a microphone and some simple software, to let their students try their hand at Podcasting.

Classroom ideas for podcasting:

  • Weekly news broadcast
  • Field trip documentation
  • Recordings of class discussions
  • Book reviews and interviews
  • Public Service Announcements
