Podcasting in the English classroom

Lyndsay's curator insight, April 3, 2013 10:12 PM

This link provides a valuable resource for helping students improve their listening and speaking skills. It refers to using the digital technology of podcasting and includes lesson plans and tutorials of how to best use podcasting to benefit students skills. Many of the areas found within the Digital Technologies curriculum (ACARA, 2013) include literacy as a general capability and therefore, this resource would allow students to develop safe digital technology practices as well as improve their digital literacy skills.
