Embed your podcast on your classroom web site

Students love interactivity. It’s where they live. The flat world of the pencil and paper is not on their radar.

In order to get your students’ attention, you have to get into the new millennium and ramp up your classroom web site or blog. You can do this with a podcast.

Podcasting at a place like Voki or Gcast is easy and your finished product can be embedded directly into your classroom web site. Once it’s embedded into a single page, you can move it any place you wish with a single piece of code. Here’s an example on my classroom web site.

Don’t worry about how you might sound on the podcast. You can even have fun with it and try silly voices, or even have your students record podcasts. Either way, they’ll love it.
