Helping Students Creating Public Radio-Style Podcasts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All Things Considered, Radio Lab, Here and Now - these are just a few of the engaging audio tools you’ll learn how to integrate into your classroom. The Common Core requires that students build their critical listening and understanding skills. This presentation will show many ways to build audio into the science curriculum using public radio, audio recording and editing techniques.

The Common Core also presents opportunities for teachers, especially science teachers,to do more inquiry-based activities. Public radio stories can be used effectively as a “hook” for more in-depth inquiry. Participants in the workshop will explore ways of connecting audio, scientific inquiry and social studies topics.

The presentation will be led by award-winning public radio Reporter Monica Brady-Myerov along with Master Technology Teacher Adam Pizzi of Westfield New Jersey public schools for grades 6-12. We will share use case scenarios of how teachers can arm students with the skills to source, interview, write, edit, and record podcasts. Participants will walk away with a list of tools to build critical listening skills into the curriculum across subjects. They will use their smart phones to record and edit sound. And they’ll learn how to make their students audio storytellers.
