Transcript of Copy of Copy of Podcasts In Language Teaching
A podcast can be on any topic, and can include music and video. A podcast can last anything upwards of a few minutes to an hour or more. Podcasts can be authentic such as BBC radio shows (often downloadable as podcasts) or specially made for language learners. A podcast is an audio or video program (multimedia file) formatted to be played on a mobile device or a personal computer and made available for free or for purchase. Podcasts are shows, similar to radio or TV shows, that are produced by professionals or amateurs and posted to the Internet for download and listening or viewing. There are many podcast directories aimed specifically at teachers and learners of English:
http://www.esldesk.com/esl-links: Directory of different and multiple links to listen to and practice listening.
http://www.eltpodcast.com/ There are two main uses of podcasts in teaching.
Firstly, learners can listen to podcasts made by others and
Secondly, they can produce their own podcasts. How to create learner podcasts
Learner podcasts can consist of a series of short audio files, lasting from 10-20 seconds to several minutes, made by individual learners, or of longer podcasts, made by small groups. Step 1: Setting up a podcast page (Approximately 30 min.)
Use diplomatic at www.podomatic.com to create a podcast. To do this, it is necessary to use a computer, Internet connection, a microphone and speakers or a headset. Podcasts sites are extremely easy to use and no specialist technical knowledge is needed. The podcast page provides a website for learners to post their podcasts to. Step 2: Creating Learner podcasts (Approximately 45-60 min.)
In pairs or individually, learners prepare and rehearse a short text about a determined topic. As your teacher, tell them what information they need to include. It is important to allow learners time to rehearse their texts several times so that they feel confident about being recorded. Although, their podcasts should not be directly read out word by word, do allow learners to make notes to help them, as they feel it is important to be as accurate as possible. Step 3: Listening to learner podcasts (Approximately 45-60 min.)
In a subsequent class, put learners individually (or in pairs) with a computer and allow them to listen to all of their classmates’ podcasts. In a single computer classroom, the podcasts can be played one by one, via speakers. Tell learners to take notes on what they hear. Once all podcasts have been listened to, allow learners to compare notes in small groups. Step 4: Follow-up (3-4 subsequent lessons)
Once learners have produced one short podcast, and are familiar with the podcasting site and how to use it, they can start to produce regular podcasts on the topics which are covered in class. The more learners practice preparing podcast texts, rehearsing them and recording them, the more confident they will become, and the more natural their recordings will start to sound. In such a digital world, with high connectivity beacause of demanddriven learning, there is a need to expand our vision of pedagogy and follow the latest technological changes in educational field. There are major technological trends in the educational arena such as the diversification of learning tools , for example, web 2.0 tools. Podcasting and Youtube,
Voki, Vimeo Important transformations are underway in terms of how we live, work and learn.
“information age” or
“knowledge based society” The main premise of listening comprehension in the age of Web 2.0 is that
the opportunities are available in Web 2.0 make the learner-centered acquisition of skills in listening comprehension in a technology-mediated environment What is Voxopop? Listening comprehension is one of the most frustrating parts of the English/ESL learning process. People all around the world work hard to learn to read, write, and speak, but for a number of reasons, listening is something they never get the hang of (learn to manage). The ability to listen in English demands a special set of skills that cannot easily be taught.Fortunately, with dedication and good strategies, listening skills are relatively easy to develop, and it’s one of the quickest and surest ways to upgrade your listening comprehension It will also open the door to the vast world of English speaking media. I believe that we cannot even begin to imagine the changes that are going to take place as the two-way nature of the Internet begins to flower, and that even those of us who have spent time imagining this future will be astounded by what happens.
