Hurray! For Gcast Podcasting...

I want to share an article about one of my former Master's students. Pat Sattler is an innovative and very creative technology teacher in Southeastern Michigan. She works at a Catholic K-8 school where she wanted to do podcasting, but did not have lots of cash for equipment. She turned to the cell phone coupled with Gcast and Hipcast so that her students could podcast and create Radio Theaters. She only used one cell phone (her own, a basic Motorola Razr) with many students to create some fantastic Radio Theater. The projects continue and each podcast gets even more creative and interesting. And it all started with one cell phone and a free website! Even the state-wide Catholic school journal decided to publish about her successful project! A great lesson for me from this is that you do not need every student to have a cell phone in order to have engaging learning activities from them.
