I have been preaching a little about how wonderful podcasts and blogging tools really engage students and increase learning. One of my social studies teachers has decided to create a class blog, and another one has confessed today that he is totally addicted to podcasts. I love the title of his blog, aptly named “The Kneighborhood of Knowledge.” How clever is that?? His blog also has a page called podcasts, which tells me he is interested in exploring the concept of podcasting for his class! WOOT! Before today, I had only managed to convince library colleagues (from various other schools) to jump in, but I can now say I have fellow teaching colleagues joining me in the web 2.0 ocean. Please encourage them by visiting the one blog (I predict the other will be blogging before long) and leaving him a nice compliment or message of encouragement. Both are EXCELLENT teachers who have the greatest of potential. All of the sudden all the kids think these two already cool teachers are even more cool!!
P.S. (I haven’t done that since middle school myself!) Both of these teachers have been listening to and viewing K12Online Conference material. Since this is about my school, I will call this an SYP!
