Snow Bundle AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER About Podcasting Everybody carries an iPod -> Fits students life style It is an economical way to access authentic materials, especially for advanced level students It is possible for students to publish their work

Delivery of materials from teacher to students has become easier Community beyond classroom AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Podcasts are internet radio/video programs played with personal computer and often with mobile devices. Normally the device you play on need not be iTunes. And mobile device need not be

iPod. Even some cell phones and PDA can play podcasts. However iTunesU require iTunes and it is easier to synch into iPod from iTunes. AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER There are three types of podcasts 1. Audio only 2. Enhanced;with chapter function, still graphics

3. Video In enhanced podcasts, still graphics are shown where you would see artwork for music album appears. AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER How to upload files AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER

students in the Japanese program. You can give a quick lesson, tell a good story about your learning experience, introduce a good online tool, teach your favorite expression, or whatever you feel that would benefit lowerclass students with the study of Japanese. AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Keypoints to a successful lesson Step-by-step instructions Sample recording

Checklist for requirements (functions, grammar, vocabulary Task complete within classtime (1-3 minute recording) Work in pairs/groups AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Reflections I am always looking for ways to engage students. They seem to retain materials

better. Students can become the creator of work. They get to be creative and take the initiatives. Prepared speech leads into proficiency in conversation/speaking? Copyright material Intellectual property issues AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Students reactions

From Dict-a-conversation style: Department store It was fine, but far too long to finish in less than an hour I enjoyed it but we didnt have enough time I liked doing it but there was not enough time to really do it I enjoyed this activity but sometimes it was hard to hear the recordings because of the background noise in the lab while recording

AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Students reactions Time was rough. I think it would be better as a homework assignment Thought it was great It was a challenge, but pay off in the end. We won! Good Just like dict-a-conversation

More fun. I like going to lab. It was hard, but it helped. Very helpful but felt rushed to complete assignments AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Students reactions Ch 9: Peer conversation: Restaurants and Invitation Love it- feedback is good too Fun It was challenging

It was fun! Very good practice for inviting and deciding on things. Not bad, no complaints Helpful for experiencing the actual situation and practicing It was fun- I prefer writing but the podcasting allows us to speak in a fun environment (less stressful) AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Students reactions

It helps and was easier this time around than last. I really like listening to the other students podcasts. The podcasting assignments are fun and the technology was easier to use this time. I do like the podcast, it makes me more aware of how I am saying things. I like it alright. But I feel too rushed and make a lot of mistakes. They are a bit challenging abut they help reveal what

I still need to study. AFTJ Workshop: SCHNEIDER Students usage stats 2/19/09 1) Class recording: ( 1 )subscribe as podcast ( 5 ) download and listen ( 7 ) dont use 2) Homework track: ( 6 )subscribe as podcast ( 8 ) download and listen ( ) dont use 3) Student work track:
