Almost everything in the country today is run by technology. We owe a lot of our success to it. Still some people are afraid to change and adapt to the technological world they find themselves in. The main question people are trying to answer is, "Is teaching with technology helping students learn more effectively, or is it a waste of time?"
I recently read a blog about such a topic. A lot of parents apparently think that podcasting is a waste of valuable learning time. The main point of this blog was to remind parents why they podcast. Podcasting teaches such things as collaboration skills, writing skills, speaking skills, story telling skills and many other valuable things our students need.
I believe that podcasting can be an amazing teaching tool. I am looking forward to creating my own podcast in the coming weeks. It's more rewarding to know all of the skills that can be improved by podcasting. There are certain things that even I need to improve on.
As always, thanks for reading!
