Hello John,
I am very interested in your project. I am also working on my Masters and I am asking the same questions. I am also interested in the improved home school connection that podcasting may also support. How have you been progressing so far? I would love to hear from you and we can share some of our podcasting ideas and research.

Great ideas here! I am currently working with 8th grade students who put together a morning announcement show and broadcast it around the school. In addition to learning basic editing skills, they also are developing some important communication and public speaking skills. My question is, where can I get daily world news feeds that I can (legally) print and give to the students to read each morning? Anyone have any ideas?

I am currently planning to create podcasts (radio shows) with my Middle years students in Australia. I am also completing my Masters research with my thesis being that students can achieve improved literacy outcomes via podcasting. I plan to compare written and oral communication skills with 2 groups- a control group writing, collaborating and delivering scripts for their peers and the podcast group using the ICT tools and having a worldwide audience. What I would like to find is lesson planning format for English or Media studies that provides students with the essential skills to write radio scripts, considering the spoken genre and audience. This would provide me with the core understandings, skills, and process to ensure my research is credible and can be substantiated. Can anyone help?

Tony, This is exactly what I'm trying to get together in my middle school and I plan to allow some of our 7-8th graders to put it together. I am in contact with a local channel that produces a kids tv program and we will start our project with a field trip to their studio soon. I'll keep you posted on how things go. Joan Glowacki

Tony this is awesome.. We have a similar program but it is Video production. We also have our own cable channel (educational only) that we play the different event on on timed playback decks. Our local cable company has been tremendously supportive. This year and last year have been tial by fire in learning all the componets, systems and processes. Last year we had built 2 high end video editing computers. It has also been a large rebuilding year updating technology and freeing up time. We lean heavily on the local businesses who we make yearly commercials for ($400.00) and we play them at the end of all of our events. One of the biggest hings i had to overcome was the sterotype of the AV geek, that ended when the QB for the football team signed up. This is a great progam to start in any school. and it can be started very cost efectively

To Tony and Don: Bravo! The Fine Arts Team here at my elementary school decided to pool their yearly lump sum supply money to purchase a camera, tripod, mic, and dolly to begin an on-campus media studio. We are just getting started. I am so inspired by your work with the students.
