Blog Post #4
The post, 1st Graders Create Their Own Read-Along Audiobook by Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano, reminds me a lot of the old read along cassette tapes I use to get from the library. I think is very similar to that, because on the cassette tape it too also had sounds to indicate to turn the page or the end of a chapter. Tolisano is doing a nice job in keeping that cassette tape read along thing but using it on modern day technology. Flat Stanley Podcast was awesome, and it was done by first graders. Ms. Tolisano and her first grade class did a great job expressing energy while they read, because it made the podcast sound fun and interesting. This makes the students more interested in their work and does a great job in keeping the students attention.
The video, Benefits of podcasting in the classroom by Joe, was excellent. Joe did a wonderful job in showing us the benefits of podcast and the different types of podcasting. The greatest thing I love about podcast is the fact that you can access it anywhere at any time, and if you mess school all you have to do is pull up the podcast.
I learn to be bring energy to my podcast, because being energetic can make all the difference. No one wants to listen to someone sounding like Ben Stein; the guy who did the Clear Eyes commercials. I know when making my podcast with energy can make the listeners believe I’m really interested in what I’m doing not like someone is forcing me to do it.
