First Attempt at Podcasting

25 June 2007

I had a great morning working with a small group of year 4 children and experimenting with podcasting. Using Podium by Softease it was really straight forward to record voices, add sound effects and music. The royalty free music came from the incompetech website.

I use apple’s itunes to collect and listen to podcasts which is free to download. Once itunes is installed and open, click on ‘Advanced’ and then ‘Subscribe to Podcast..’ Paste the following URL into the box to hear Sarah and Caitlin’s joke.

Next we hope to podcast a school radio show just like the wonderful shows already happening in Wiltshire at Fitzmaurice and St Marks Primary schools.

Primary Geography Resources

20 June 2007

I had a quick look at the Global Eye website at the Wiltshire Primary Geography Conference today. It has lots a good detail about different countries and focus topics. The latest addition is all about the Nile and focuses on Water. Click on ‘back issues‘ and you have access to an archive of previous issues covering a range of countries and topics.
