Listening to Podcasts to Enhance Learning
Sharing podcasts is another way to immerse students in learning. These days there seems to be a podcast for every topic. For younger students you may choose to introduce them to oral stories via podcasts. Older students may deepen their understanding from listening to a series of podcast episodes on the Civil War. Below you will find just a few podcasts suggestions. If you are interested in exploring the use of podcasts with your students, check out the podcast section of iTunes. Narrow your search by choosing educational podcasts and then choosing K-12. As always, contact your building TIL if you have questions or would like further support.
