In the American Pageant's Infinite Playlist, I have painstakingly aggregated and aligned a database of over 250 NPR podcasts with the 13th Edition of the American Pageant. Teachers (and students) can now investigate stories of the real people behind the often sterile descriptions found in history texts. Each podcast will bring to life the characters of history with summaries and anecdotes of the historical events that shaped the American story. By combining an amazing archive of NPR History podcasts and the power of Remind.com, the American Pageant Infinite Playlist provides an effective and efficient tool to effortlessly deliver audio content directly to student smart phones.
Whether you teach online, face-to-face, or blended courses, podcasts can improve student learning by allowing the student time to master fundamental material on their own time. The American Pageant's Infinite Playlist works perfectly with any classroom model. Teachers can use their experience and expertise, in combination with blended-learning techniques, to encourage student participation and create an active classroom environment filled with learners ready to discuss and debate course content.
