Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a headline I would have considered current in around 2003 or so, but hey, educational podcasts were a good idea then and they're a good idea now. As true today as it was twenty years ago, "educational podcasts come in diverse forms, including podcasts produced by teaching practitioners for learners, by learners for teachers (for instance as summative assessment) by students for each other (for instance as peer-supportive resources) and by teachers for other teachers." What the article does point to is a resurgence of interest in podcasts (not coincidentally, I think, with the collapse of cable media, the fragmentation of streaming video services, and the toxification of social media). What it doesn't talk about is the use of an open access format (RSS) to distribute and collect free media. Image: EduTech Wiki.
