Podcasting in Education: Changing the Game for Teachers & Students


As part of a study for a new book on podcasting in education, over 100 podcasters in education were interviewed for their insight on using podcasting as a teaching tool and its impact on learners and educators.

Much like other tech tools, podcasting offers brand-new opportunities for teachers to implement their teaching plan while opening fresh avenues for students to remain engaged and interested in their studies.

The ability to share information in audio form is changing the way educators look at designing courses. Image of a man and woman sitting next to each other in front of computer screens with imagery on them.

For example, instead of traditional methods of assessment and testing, podcasting and audio assignments are becoming commonplace. These assignments allow students to enhance an entirely different set of skills – such as interviewing or audio and video editing.

As podcasts and podcast technology become even more popular in the EdTech realm, we will continue to cover this developing trend in future blogs. Stay tuned.
