Ken Smith writes about some potential uses for audio blogging, and I think they’re definitely worth thinking about and expanding upon. He cites the school literary magazine, and I might add the school paper. How cool would it be to add clips of let’s say bands that are featured in stories, or music being reviewed, or excerpts of interviews that kids are conducting? He also writes about getting folks to do short audio clips on specific subjects like getting the most our of college. Heck, we could do a weekly feature of topics like that. And in terms of special projects like the Poland project we’re doing, how cool would it be to actually have the sounds of kids talking about their experiences? I’ve actually experimented just a bit with this at our Voices of Youth blog, but I need to make the process easier.
I need to dig into Bob Doyle’s blogaudio.org site more deeply. But for now, if anyone could suggest some hardware and process links to facilitate all of this, it would be greatly appreciated.
