Today we had the opportunity to explore podcasts on odeo. I explored both the NPR environmental channel and Our Ocean World, which is an educational channel about all types of subjects on the ocean.
I really like the idea of using podcasts in class because so much of it is very current and they provide interesting info in a format that many students may know already. I could see assigning podcasts as homework, or attaching them to a course blog as enrichment activities. There are so many great podcasts out there!
