Podcasts (audio and video) are quickly becoming an essential component to the integration of technology into classroom instruction. Podcasts can be found for a variety of educational topics. Podcasts are available by subscription. When you subscribe to a podcast, new episodes download automatically when available. One example of an educational podcast is Longfellow Middle School students in Wisconsin created a podcast to share their interpretation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest (can be found in the Podcasts Directory). Organizations like CNN, NPR, PBS, and National Geographic post free podcasts for classroom use.
