A little over a month ago I posted a blog entry about third and fourth grade students who posted a podcast to their blog about WIKI’s. Well, they’re not the only ones in that classroom podcasting. Bob Sprankle, teacher of the Room 208 Scholars, shares his (and others) thoughts through his podcast entitled bit by bit: by a teacher, for teachers. In this week’s show, Seedlings Podcast @ Bit by Bit: Show 02, Bob shares his “techie thing of the week.” His description of a free technology that allows you to easily email voice recordings intrigued me…I had to give it a try. Two words, very cool!
sprindoo (www.springdoo.com) allows you to easily record up to ten minutes of a message then provides a link that can be pasted into an email and sent to anyone. Incidentally, you can also paste the link into other applications, like IM for example. Sometimes it’s just easier to say it than put it in a lengthy email. Try it out…and here is some incentive. I’ll send the first two Discovery Educator Network members that send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a springdoo message a Discovery Education shirt. So springdoo me and I’ll springdoo you right back!
