(via Stephen Downes) This is why I love the Internet and Weblogs…well, one of the reasons, anyway. Something new comes along (Podcasting), a bunch of people start throwing stuff at the proverbial wall to see what sticks, the meme spreads like the disbelief around the world at the results of our election, and someone like Steve Sloan at San Jose State University cranks up Edupodder.com to filter it all for us.
I have been thinking a lot of the potential of the medium. I really think there is something here for education!
In my opinion Podcasting is a great tool:
for distance learning to facilitate self-paced learning for remediation of slower learners to allow faculty to offer advanced and or highly motivated learners extra content for helping students with reading and/or other learning disabilities for multi-lingual education to provide the ability for educators to feature guest speakers from remote locations to allow guest speakers the ability to present once to many sections and classes to allow educators to escape the tedium of lecturing to offer a richer learning environment
Way too much fun…now, if he just had an RSS feed.
