We have done podcasts for about 7 years with kids, but this year we turned in our Mac books for chromebooks. I was unsure how to record and save a podcast with the chromebooks, so I turned to my PLN. Someone on twitter mentioned I should check out Mic Note. I am glad I did.
Mic Note is a chromes store add on for google chrome (works on Macs/PC if running chrome) and allows for easy podcasting and exporting to your drive (as an Mp3). It also is a great note taking software for meetings or class where you can use the build in note taker to time important points in the discussion.
In a few days, I will post a few student examples for you to hear. In the mean time, here is a tutorial I made for my students to help them get started. Let me know how you use Mic Note on your chromebooks with your student's.
Below is a short 2 minute discussion between myself and Emily Dralle, my student teacher from John Carroll, on her thoughts of the students doing the podcast using Mic Note.
Garth: I also have lots of Minecraft projects going on now. Some kids have built a visual world of the year to date. Images of Greece, Rome and now the middle ages. I am adding a few older projects here for you to view, but expect to have some more in the next few weeks and our students get deeper into the content.
One thing we hope to do this year, is get a server built and have both schools work other 130 miles apart. Should be awesome. Check back soon...
