Add this to another station Mark Bernstein - Protecting the Blogosphere (9.47MB; download) -- Several presenters have been able to put together podcasts to support their presentations. Here’s Mark Bernstein’s and can I recommend that if you listen to one podcast this, week, month or year… this should be it.

Add this to another station Blogs, RSS and Cool Stuff (10.51MB; download) -- People seem to like that title. They also like the presentation, which covers everything from content management systems, blogs, wikis and RSS. The MP3 audio of my session Friday in Whitehorse, Yukon. Yukon photos, which you can use to decorate your desktops, slides or web pages. On Saturday I went hiking at Miles canyon in the Yukon wilderness with fellow photographer and former RCMP officer Hank Moorlag, who offers his photographs of the day (including one of me on a cliff). Don't miss his other set of Yukon photos. (mpeg) By Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, November 19, 2004

Add this to another station Right Ways and Wrong Ways of Podcasting in Education (0.00MB; download) -- Food for thought for Educational podcasters: The He Said She Said podcast (Host:Rob Reynolds, Guest : Susan Smith Nash) Show Notes: Podcasting is fun, exciting, dynamic, and portable. It's perfect for e-learning, especially when it surges naturally from a course, and individuals start using it in a collaborative way, and the instructor uses it to accommodate different learning styles and to introduce a new way to let the mind organize and make meaning. However, the same fun, dynamic approach to e-learning can be stripped of all its excitement and rendered into a barren, sterile wasteland of educational content by forcing it into an inappropriate instructional model. Wrong Way #1: Require students to listen to the podcast while staying tied to a computer, rather than exploiting the functionality of the mp3 player ( Rio , iPod, etc.) I'm not saying that a well-made powerpoint or synched slide show is a bad thing, just that this superimposes a delivery mode that has little or nothing to do with the way that individuals are using the technology. Keep it portable. Wrong Way #2: Record a 60-minute lecture in a monotone devoid of any memory markers, narrative structure, story, or dialogue. Do you want to bore your students and turn them off of listening to audio files? This will do it! (Unless, of course, you're trying to create high-quality content-neutral, non-intrusive “white noise” that will effectively block out ambient noise.) Right Way #1: Design your podcasts so that your points make connections with the student's life and experiences, as well as with the course goals and content. Ideally, your podcast should result in enhanced student engagement – they will return to the course and post comments, refer to the podcast in discussions, and collaborate with other students in innovative and possibly unexpected ways. Right Way #2: Podcast as knowledge-importer. Trigger thoughts and ideas to stimulate the students' cognitive processes. Ideally, you'll be helping them make connections to immediate knowledge and short-term memory, which will translate from working memory to stored, long-term memory. You'll also help them organize the knowledge into categories in a way that facilitates retrieval. Finally, the podcast stimulates the processing of experience and construction of knowledge that leads to deep learning, the ability to make generalizations, and other meta-cognitive activities. The knowledge can then be used in problem-solving, synthesis, and cognitive model-making. This is new territory, and I think that it would be quite useful to start doing a few studies of how people are using podcasting, and on learning efficacy. It may be that there are discipline-modified “best practices” for podcasting. Who knows – I think the key is to explore, but resist the impulse to be over-deterministic and formulaic until we've had a chance to do some studies, and to really probe this new opportunity. In the meantime, I'm going to continue to do podcasts, even if I'm unconsciously or unwittingly being naughty and doing it all wrong. He Said I hate to admit it, but I'm in perfect agreement with Susan on this. I'm not a believer in 60-minute speeches by great orators who are speaking on topics I really care about, much less in lectures by professors to students whose interest is dubious. And, if you take the actual person out of the picture and make people listen to a disembodied voice in which they have little interest, well, I think that probably borders on cruel and unusual punishment. At that point you're so deep into Plato's cave you can't even see the reflection of the divine. So, when it comes to wrong ways to use podcasting in education, I think you want to avoid the following: Lectures Formal tone Anything over 10 minutes Lack of visual clues or auditory reinforcement In terms of best practices, here is what I propose (also, listen to this podcast on the subject along with the acc
