    My fourth and fifth grade students are just venturing into podcasting, as I recently bought the ZEN mp3 player recorder at the Discovery Store. We take it around campus for interviews and they narriate their slide presentaitons about the readng basal stories with their own voice and those they interview. Nathan Guteras, N FL DEN member

    What a tremendous resource! And as much as it delves into film making, its real purpose is to get students engaged in the curriculum, be it math, English, science, etc. Run, don’t walk, over to unitedstreaming after listening to this podcast and check out the video clips and Educator’s Handbook.

    Thank you for sharing your views on film-making in the classroom. I think once people see how easy it is becoming for students to create meaningful video and podcasts about educational topics, and how motivating it is for learning, more and more will come on board to include these types of learning experiences in their classroom. One of my kids announced to a room full of parents last year that his favorite thing about podcasting was that I let them do this “instead of learning.” Isn’t it wonderful when you can sneak in a world of learning disguised as fun!

    What great timing– I’m so excited to develop our new high school film studies course with AFI as backup in the classroom! This is a definite homerun. Thanks for the collaboration partnership and tremendous ideas for use.
