Podcasts to help students study

Question:Lots of teachers are using blogs and reading blog content, but do you know of any teachers who are using podcasts to help students study for tests and improve their levels of tested student achievement?

The IT Guy says:
Eric Langhorst, a history teacher in the Kansas City area, writes and creates the “Speaking of History” blog and podcast. Eric has successfully used a podcast as a “study-cast” for his students to help them review for an exam. His students are able to listen to his recorded audio on their home computers, and the few who have a portable music device (like iPods) can actually time- and place-shift, listening to the study-cast wherever and whenever they want.

This is a great idea, and more teachers should creatively utilize podcasting Another great podcast to check out is Room208 in Wells, Maine.
