This looks like something right up your alley. :-) Have you tried it?

I learned the details on Konrad Glukowski’s blog. It’s an amazing strategy for engaging older students! http://www.teachandlearn.ca/blog/2008/06/02/avoid-school-talk-part-1/

This is the link to the Mixwit site. http://www.mixwit.com/

It’s your mix, so make something unique. Add pictures, photos, artwork, drawings… Anything you want. Make a mix of your favorite songs and artists. Post your mixtape to MySpace, Facebook, Blogger, and others. You can post it on a blog, wiki or website too.

Hi Shawn,

Based on our discussion on Friday, these are some of the important links.

The Flat Classroom Project – Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis http://flatclassroomproject.wikispaces.com

The Project uses Web 2.0 tools to make communication and interaction between students and teachers from all participating classrooms easier. The topics studied and discussed are real-world scenarios based on ‘The World is Flat’ by Thomas Friedman.

The Flat Classroom Project 2006 is featured in the latest edition of Friedman’s book in Chapter 13, ‘If it’s not happening it’s because you’re not doing it’, page 501-503.

One of the main goals of the project is to ‘flatten’ or lower the classroom walls so that instead of each class working isolated and alone, 2 or more classes are joined virtually to become one large classroom. This will be done through the Internet through Wikispaces and Ning.

The Horizon Project is another one to follow each year. – http://www.nmc.org/horizon

Helen

Also from Helen a link to the book Web 2.0 From Curious to Competent -

Did a bit more work on the Web 2.0 Class about 85% complete.

Hi Shawn,

Just listened to this video on YouTube posted by Andrew Middleton. I subscribe to his newsletter and have used some of his resources in the past. He’s very involved with podcasting at the university level in the UK. This link will take you to the blog post where the video is available. He provides some good suggestions for free places to host student podcasts. It is not a great quality video but the suggestions are good. Thought you might like to check it out.
“Hosting (student) podcasts
We use Blackboard to host podcasts produced by academic staff (using Learning Objects’ Podcast LX building block) but at the moment we have no easy way for students to distribute podcasts. This video offers a few options using Web 2.0 services:

Andrew Middleton”

Free Hosting Places for Podcasts
Source: http://podcasting-for-lta.blogspot.com/2008/05/hosting-student-podcasts.html

There are a lot of other interesting posts on his blog. :-) He’s working with a group of faculty members to create a collaborative book about podcasting. This is a link to the wiki where they are adding their ideas/content for the book. “Podcasting for Pedagogic Purposes”. The project is fairly new so people are still adding to it. http://podcastingforpp.pbwiki.com/

There are some really interesting podcasts on this page that include interviews and panel discussions about podcasting. http://www.pppsig.podomatic.com/

He has a couple of PPTs posted on the wiki (under June event) that explain this part of the project. The first ppt explains the process he used in the workshop which I think is a great idea! I’ve used his “100 ideas” before when I was working at ASUW. 100 ideas for Podcasting, facilitated by Andrew Middleton (this quickly became 200 ideas!)

100 Ideas for Educational Podcasting – the book!
The aim of this session was to generate 100 ideas for educational podcasts. These ideas will be published in a book by the end of the year targeted at the UK FE and HE community. It is expected that you will come with at least 2 great ideas of how podcasting is already being used and, once we have captured these, we will generate further ideas through creativity activities to reach our target of 100 transferable ideas! Later, a number of these scenarios will be developed further as implemented case studies. Together the scenarios and case studies will demonstrate the versatility and benefits of the medium to educators across the curriculum.

One of the people created a great document called “Podcasting: a step- by-step guide” that provides instructions for using Audacity and Podomatic. http://podcastingforpp.pbwiki.com/f/podcasting_guide_April-2008.pdf It’s really good. :-)
