    I’m loving the hopscotch analogy and need to remember to take it one hop at a time, just throwing my stone to the next square rather than trying to jump too far ahead! Great ideas shared in your podcast … thanks for sharing!

      Hi Shelly,
      That’s very kind of you to say. I had an unbelievable time with the finishing steps and uploading, as if Mr. Murphy was right by my side, all the way šŸ™‚

    Great podcast Anne!! For a ‘Rookie’ sounded pretty professional, so well done! Great ideas and tonnes of sources too. Enjoyed ‘connecting’ to who you are through this podcast. Just as you mentioned it is a great way of getting to know and understand others.

    Hopscotch analogy ā€“ nice!

    I also had questions around podcasting versus just writing out. Iā€™m glad that you addressed it because I ran out of space to do so. Iā€™m also glad you explored the differences in podcasts vs. voicethreads etc.

    Oh, and I realized you used the University of Alberta podcasting hosting ā€“ good memory! Iā€™d completely forgotten about that ā€“ thanks for the reminder.

    And Debbie is right – you do sound professional, and very comfortable with what you are doing.

      Thanks, Kirsten! I have to tell you that I was a wreck while recording! This was so far out of my comfort zone! I’d never made a podcast and nearly went through the roof when my son literally made my voice sound like I’d inhaled helium. He was in stitches (he’s 12) and plays with Garage Band just because it’s cool! Thank goodness for these little people who help keep everything in perspective. Anne šŸ™‚

    Hi Anne! Thanks for the Skype call today. I agree with you that podcasts are excellent for differentiating instruction. Our voicethread discussion about pictures from a student’s school, shared with pictures from another students school, is a great example of podcasting and real world learning experiences. Thanks for the podcast sites. looks interesting.

      Hi Tim, Voice thread is the next thing we’ve got to get going. It could start within a school between a grade 1 class and a grade 6 class – different perspectives on school or their community or what they want to be in they grow up – infinite possibilities for exploration and inquiry. Here’s a thought – a voice thread of a class in K and again in grade 6 so see/hear how they’ve changed! Anne

    Hi Tim, Thanks for your comment. I can’t wait to try some podcasting and will be working with a student who will become the” expert” in the class and help others learn how to work with this awesome web 2.0 tool. Anne
