Listen to a podcast
Take a look at one of many websites on podcasting
That was just one example of the many websites available on podcasting:

A positive aspect of this site is the simple, uncluttered layout, which makes it easy to use and understand. A free booklet by the creator of the site called ‘Podcasting for Teachers and Students’ can be downloaded for future reference. It has good diagrams and simple instructions making it easy to follow when creating your own podcasts.

The site has specific links to educational resources such as The Educational Podcast Network (EPN) which has a selection of podcasts from students and teachers alike. EPN has been created by educators who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and insights for teaching and learning through podcasting.

However you do have to be selective in what you listen to, as on a negative note the podcasts are of varying degrees of quality and in some cases links were no longer available for use.
