More Podcasting Educational Resources
My wife is a Music and Spanish teacher at a local private school and I've been working with her for the past few months on how she can enhance her teaching through mLearning and other technology.
Recently, I've discovered a plethora of podcasts available for Music and Spanish education that anyone from elementary students to adults can use:
Spanish Learning Podcast Blog - This is a great site that is full of podcasts and other resources to learn Spanish. Applicable for all levels. Download a sample podcast here-> Also check out Voice Genesis , a service that InstaSpanish uses to download podcasts to mobile phones.
EdTech Musician has podcasts and video casts available for more advanced music students. Download the feed here. Or download a sample podcast here.
Some more educational podcasting resources for teachers:
The Education Podcast Network
Podcast Directory List
Podcast Directory for Teachers - from the UK
Podscope - search on a specific word in a audio file
VodStock - a vodstock directory
The more I work with my wife on her lessons, the more I realize that mLearning is far more prevalent than once thought. Teachers, designers, and enthusiasts all around the world are creating mLearning tools without realizing it. I am beginning to think that once everyone gets over the stigma of mLearning being somehow cutting edge and out of reach, there will be a worldwide explosion.
