Tired of the same old book reports? This activity will enable your students to read, collaborate, record and share their book reviews online in a safe and easy way. Students post their podcasts, listen to each others' podcasts and even get great book recommendations.
Podcasting is perfect for a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). All you need is a computer and microphone or even a cell phone that records. Students can record their podcast on a conference call or sit around a laptop and speak their minds.
Engaging, differentiated, technology-infused ... podcasting is so fun, you will soon have one for your class.
The lesson contains the directions for a book review podcast as well as the instructions for how to set up a podcast on PodOmatic, a free podcasting site. Instructions for posting the podcast on Edmodo, a blog, and to iTunes are included.
