Digital Storytelling: Podcasts as Assignments
Podcasts allow students to work with sound in order to convey information, stories, and opinions. Born out of the digital storytelling movement, podcast assignments provide a creative alternative to traditional assignments. In the first part of this workshop, we will learn about the pedagogy behind digital storytelling, discuss the exciting potential of podcast assignments, and listen to example assignments to help brainstorm ideas for your courses. In the second part, we will learn how to use a free audio editing tool called Audacity and help you create your own podcast!
