Bronwyn Allan takes over this episode of theMediaPod and interviews Ross Mon
aghan about the use of podcasting in education.
Bronwyn is a year 12 student at Tintern Girls Grammar School in Ringwood, Victoria, and is writing an essay on “the potential benefits and problems of Podcasts in tertiary education”. She approached theMediaPod as part of her research into the topic and decided to podcast the interview as part of the experience (with permission from her parents and teachers).
It’s a great example of how to use technology creatively in education. Rather than just sharing information with just a one, or a small number of people, podcasting research and school work (with permission of course) allows a greater number from around the world to access the information. It also adds a new dimension to study. Rather than just writing about podcasting, using the technology, Bronwyn has actually produced a podcast, and had some fun along the way. Ross and Bronwyn hope you enjoy this special episode.
If you’re an educator or student who has had a similar experience, why not leave us a comment? We’d love to hear from you.[audio:http://themediapod.net/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/Podcasting%20in%20Education.mp3]
