S2E9 Read Into Audibooks/Podcasts- Tim Boudreau (Part 3)

By Alanna King

Beth Lyons speaks to teacher-librarian Tim Boudreau about creating podcasts with students as part of his philosophy and integration of maker education in the school library learning commons. How might integrating podcasts and the creation of content help students to see themselves as creators of digital content and not only consumers? Tim outlines the planning process he undergoes with students as they begin to develop and plan for creating their own podcast. How can we use podcasts- both the creation and consumption of- to improve our students’ listening and speaking skills? Tim and Beth discuss whether virtual learning has raised educator’s awareness of the need to better connect literacy activities to the important skills of listening and speaking in a way that wasn’t acknowledged before.
