Great overview of podcasting and why it is good practice:
It gives them a potential audience of thousands for their work.
It’s great for develop literacy skills (writing scripts, setting up interviews etc), allows them to develop and practise their speaking and listening skills, and they also learn some amazing ICT skills.
Podcasts can be interactive, and the audience can be invited to send their comments, giving valuable feedback to the children about their work.
I’ve found that making a podcast is also great for developing teamwork skills. The children always work together really well, as they’re always keen to make a great show.
