This week on the TechEducator Podcast, we welcomed two new podcasts hosted by three very inspiring educators.
It isn't easy to start your own podcast. There are several things to consider before launching your own show.
There are several types of podcasts available for your listening enjoyment. Are you interested in doing a solo show or do you wish to have a co-host? Will your show have a lead host and several rotating guests?
Method of Recording
For many podcasters, Skype is the preferred method of recording while others prefer Google Hangouts. It might be in your best interest to simply record directly into your mobile device.
Creating a memorable podcast album art isn't easy. Your podcasting square must look good both as a large format graphic and as an icon on your mobile device.
Did you know there are more places to share your podcast outside of iTunes? Check out great content delivery networks such as Google Play, Stitcher, and Spreaker Radio just to name a few.
Let's work Together
Do you have an idea for a podcast but don't know how to start? Are you looking to bring audio and video into your classrooms? Reach out to TeacherCast today and lets get your next project started together!
TeacherCast welcomes Two New Podcasts!
Teaching Tales Podcast
About Brent Coley
Brent began his career in education in 1996, teaching 4th and 5th grade for 15 years before transitioning into administration. He is currently Principal of Alta Murrieta Elementary in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. He is also an Instructional Technology Leader in his district, helping teachers infuse technology into their teaching to support student learning.
Passionate about educational technology, Brent is always on the lookout for new ways tech can engage students and families while increasing student achievement. While in the classroom, he used math review videos and iPod flash cards to promote 24/7 learning, and his students shared their learning with the world through their daily blog and classroom podcast. Though no longer updated, his award-winning classroom website (mrcoley.com) is still accessed by students and teachers all over the world.
Now in an administrative role, Brent strives to support teachers to improve their practice and integrate technology into their classrooms to maximize student learning. He connects with the community he serves through his monthly video message, Remind, Facebook, Twitter, and school website. He also shares what he has learned through Twitter (@brentcoley), his blog, and his new podcast (“Teaching Tales”).
Brent has a passion for sharing with other educators. Over the past several years, he has had the privilege of presenting at educational technology conferences at the district, regional, and state level. Brent is also the co-organizer of EdCamp Murrieta.
When not working, Brent loves spending time with his wife and two children. He also enjoys reading and playing golf.
