Bringing Podcasting to Teachers and School Classrooms Across the Globe
(Seattle, WA September 7, 2005) "Podcasting is surely becoming another tool that
helps teachers make learning more fun and relevant to their students," says John Phillips,
a first year teacher in Washington State. "And ePodcast Producer is at the heart of my
middle school elective based on podcasting.” This year, Industrial Audio Software is
helping bring podcasting to teachers like Phillips across the country. Podcasting, a type
of audio blogging, is a way of creating radio style programming and then "broadcasting" this
content across the internet. It is considered by many to be today's fastest growing
communication technology. Students, teachers, districts, and schools are all finding
new ways to incorporate podcasting into their programs, curriculum, and lesson plans.
Podcasting is being used to share student's special projects and events such as oral
histories, chorus and band concerts, and classroom panel discussions. School news programs
can be sent to alumni and parents far away, and lectures and class content are made
available outside of class. With all these applications and more, the ePodcast Series
from Industrial Audio Software offers the only completely integrated podcasting solution.
Critics agree. More importantly, so do teachers.
To encourage the work of teachers such as Phillips, IAS is offering a 10% discount for
educators and educational institutions. This discount is one more way of making podcasting
available to every classroom teacher, school, and district. Completely integrated podcasting
software systems, free online tutorials, built-in teleprompter, powerful editor, and now a
special educator's discount. With all these offerings, Industrial Audio Software continues
to encourage creativity, understanding, and communication in classrooms everywhere.
Phillips sums it up this way: "Now that I've experienced producing podcasts myself with
this user-friendly program, I can't wait to teach the students how to use it and see them
bring their own creativity into it!"
