  1. I have enjoyed listening to your podcast Heidi. I want to know more about how you’ve made it. I also like the idea of having students keep their own mini-chart notebook. I am wondering/thinking that doing this through google classroom…would be a beneficial way to share digitally. I am learning so much from #cyberpd. Thank you for sharing such great ideas.

    • Thanks! I am using Garage Band. Then I “share” the audio file to iTunes and make sure it is mp3 format. From there I upload it to my blog. I had to follow some steps to set up a tag system on my blog so that each time I put an audio recording in a post, it automatically connects to iTunes. To get it available on iTunes I had to have it approved (which takes a few days). I don’t remember exactly how I did everything or where I found the info, but a little Google research and some trial-and-error and it is going.

      I appreciate your listening! My goal is to keep my podcasts 15 min. or less. I find that when I listen to podcasts myself, that is when my attention starts to drift. To make sure I am not rambling, I do type out a “script” first that keeps me focused and on track. Even if no one cares to listen, the whole process has helped me be more reflective and explore something I want to make available to students.
