Most of my high school students wander campus with earphones in their ears. Is there any way I can use their MP3 players or ipods to support what they learn in my classes?
Little Ms. Blog:
Yes, there is. Welcome the world of podcasts. At i-tunes podcast directory, click on the “education” category, and download the podcast of your choice.
My favorite is Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing. I’ve downloaded all her episodes, and have posted them to the school’s main server. This way, students can quickly upload them onto their MP3 players or i-pods and use them as a supplement to grammar lesson. Check out the site, or download the podcasts for free through itunes music store.
What a great way to reach the auditory learner! Better yet, Grammar Girl’s website has a visual component.
Rock on, Grammar Girl!
