How to create a student science podcast

Written by Ben Newsome on October 8th, 2017.      0 comments

Help students spread their ideas!

Podcasting also offers yet another opportunity for your students to engage with their world digitally. Armed with a microphone and a recording device, your students could be sharing their ideas and insights gained as they conduct science at your school and beyond! The content they could produce doesn't need to be groundbreaking nor something required for student assessments, it just needs to be engaging for the intended audience and motivating for your students to put together.
