Thanks to Donald I have just created my first podcast using http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and I have successfully exported it to an MP3 file. Does anyone know how I can insert this into a webpage using Dreamweaver?

Ignore that! I have managed it here if anyone wants to hear it for a laugh - scroll down to the bottom and it's called the Black Death podcast (it's quite a big file though)

Genius work Dan, you are clearly the Norman Jay of the History teaching world (alas I sounded more like Danny Baker when I tried!).

I will be experimenting in a similar manner with my young charges later on this week - can they handle it? can they handle it?

Heh heh!

We're more street in Sarf London - strictly grime, drum and bass and breakbeats (ok the last one is me not the boys)! I did like yours donald but it did send me to sleep - great for my insomnia

I shall be posting the first attempts by my boys later tonight for your pleasure :teacher:

I have added 3 of my students podcasts to the link above - I like Ricky and Martin's in the style of 'kids' by Robbie and Kylie. Which do you prefer?

Excellent

The Kids one is the best one so far. I'm getting my y11s to make them as a demonstration of their learning and compare with the other classes one. Results to follow....

They loved doing it so far.

Love the work gentz!!
I held a class survey with my year 11's today.....

Answer: from 2 year 11 classes (58 kids) 100%
Q2) How many would download podcasts for revision purposes
Answer: 85%
Am going to use this inspirationa idea to produce some revision podcasts for Year 11 revision. Will keep you posted when they are complete!
Cheers lads!

Hi this seems like a really fun task! Hopefully I may be able to try this whilst I am on teaching placement next term.

How did you record the students? Was it using kit you had in school?

I used a microphone headset which I got from my CLC which happens to be next door to my school. However I know that Donald picked up a cheap microphone at PC World, which is probably more useful (mine has a short lead and only one person can really use it at a time easily).

Fingers crossed we should have some decent ones on the Night of the Long Knives on Friday - class are loving it! Far more motivated than if I asked them to write written answers to demonstrate their knowledge. No hold on... they're writing the script... exactly the same questions except they're smiling and enjoying themselves... I tricked them (cue thunder claps and flashes) again (cue evil laughter).... excellent.
