Student-produced podcasts are an engaging way to merge project-based learning, storytelling and digital media skills. Podcasts give students a voice — an opportunity to tell their story, teach something new or explore a topic that’s important to them. This multimedia form of expression has exploded in popularity over the last several years and further surged during the coronavirus pandemic.
In this webinar, The Learning Network will be joined by Laura Winnick, a school librarian from New York with experience teaching podcasting to students. We will walk you through how students can strengthen their writing, research and digital media skills by creating their own podcasts and entering them into our Student Podcast Contest. You will also hear from New York Times podcast producers and previous student winners. Together, we will:
Discuss different formats, elements and techniques that can make for effective podcasts
Share how you can use winning student podcasts as mentor texts
Learn about podcast recording and editing techniques and software that are accessible for students
Walk you through the specifics of our Student Podcast Contest
Leave you with ideas for how students can create podcasts in the classroom, or at home, right away.
CTLE credit is available for New York educators. All participants will receive a certificate of completion.
