"Few other technological developments have the same potential for transforming teaching and learning as podcasts ... This step by step guide can help the fledgling podcaster take the first few steps to using podcasts and can encourage those already dabbling to improve their practices by understanding underlying principles ... I can only urge you to give it a go." Dr Stephen Gomez, National Teaching Fellow and Principal Lecturer, University of the West of England, UK "With podcasting now really taking flight, this highly practical book is just what teaching practitioners need. It is refreshingly accessible in its use of language, making it suitable for those of us that don't know our vodcasting from our podcasting." Dr Gwen van der Velden, Director of Learning and Teaching Enhancement, University of Bath, UK "Podcasting is now at a tipping point and ready to provide universal 24/7 access to learning. This book provides the background and an invaluable "how to" guide ... It deserves to be in every library and faculty office." Dr Bill Ashraf, Director of Technology Enhanced Learning, University of Sussex, UK "Given the dominance of text-based formats, this timely book demonstrates that media-diversification is a MUST.." Dr Thomas Hülsmann, Program Director of the Master of Distance Education (MDE), Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Germany "'Podcasting made easy' - does that sound like a contradiction in terms? Well now you don't have to struggle with the technicalities because this book really does describe how easy it is to create and utilize podcasting in teaching ... I thoroughly recommend it..." TingTing Zeng, Learning Technologist, Imperial College, UK "While the book is a mine of information, both pedagogical and practical, it is the hands-on aspect that captured my heart. Clearly written by experts, the process of creating podcasts is described in an easy-to-understand, practical way that is accessible to novice and experienced podcast author alike ... If you've been toying with the idea of podcasts, this is for you. If you've tried the basics and want to go the next step, this is for you. How to create Podcasts for Education will not merely be on your bookshelf; I predict that it will be well-thumbed!" Ruth Brown, Academic Developer, Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit, London South Bank University, UK Further information on the theory and practice of podcasting can also be accessed on the dedicated website at www.podcastingforlearning.com.

Podcasting for Learning in Universitiesdetails several examples of research to practice for the successful use of podcasts in Higher Education, drawing from studies in the UK, Australia and South Africa. The book offers a practical transferable model and guidelines for integrating podcasts in higher education contexts. There is a dedicated website atwww.podcastingforlearning.comwith further links and examples. "The sheer range of ideas for using podcasts shown by the case studies, will hopefully spark off a number of ideas for ways in which practice in one subject can be re-used in another. Case studies covering reflective learning, active learning, students voices, fieldwork, distance learning and learning transferable skills, show that podcasts are flexible enough as a medium to deliver effective learning outcomes regardless of the subject." ESCalate, 2nd October 2008.To read more of the ESCalate reviewclick here. "This book is exactly what is required for a wide range of potential readers - it is practical, yet derived from research; it is focused on student learning, yet has a technical component; it is leading-edge, yet it draws on many case studies." Professor Robin Mason, The Open University, UK "I recommend this book to all academics in higher education." Peter Bullen, Ford Professor of Automotive Engineering, University of Hertfordshire, UK "This book shows how podcasts can help transform the teaching and learning experience in Higher Education...a blueprint for podcast use." Professor David Nicol, University of Strathclyde, Scotland "The students' views are represented strongly throughout the book, which helps to make it a compelling and extremely worthwhile read." Dr Linda Creanor, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland "Finally, a Podcasting Bible for education!" Mazlan Hasan, Senior Instructional Designer, National Institute of Education, Singapore "The 10-step pedagogic model for developing podcasting provides an essential step-by-step guide for anyone venturing into this area for the first time." Richard Wallis, TwoFour Learning "After reading this book, I am attracted to offering another flexible learning choice. Podcasting affords active learning whether individual, cooperative or collaborative contributions, either formal or informal."

The hidden brain is the voice in our ear when we make the most important decisions in our lives—but we’re never aware of it. The hidden brain decides whom we fall in love with and whom we hate. It tells us to vote for the white candidate and convict the dark-skinned defendant, to hire the thin woman but pay her less than the man doing the same job. It can direct us to safety when disaster strikes and move us to extraordinary acts of altruism. But it can also be manipulated to turn an ordinary person into a suicide terrorist or a group of bystanders into a mob. In a series of compulsively readable narratives, Shankar Vedantam journeys through the latest discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral science to uncover the darkest corner of our minds and its decisive impact on the choices we make as individuals and as a society. Filled with fascinating characters, dramatic storytelling, and cutting-edge science, this is an engrossing exploration of the secrets our brains keep from us—and how they are revealed.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: Sehr gut, Educational academy of the federation Steiermarks, course: Akademielehrgang Englisch, language: English, abstract: The goal of this thesis is to gain numerous techniques for integrating podcasts and podcasting into teaching and learning, especially in the subject English. This work is also written for colleagues who want to make a valuable contribution to teaching foreign languages and who have the courage to organize activities combined with innovative technology for our students. Within the pages of this paper, they will find everything they need to know to get started in podcasting. I would be glad, if others use this work or even expand it, so that an active exchange of ideas can take place. At the beginning of this paper I am going to explain what a podcast is and why it is becoming such a popular medium. Next, the thesis gives a short historical overview, shows directories to browse for podcasts and how to create such an audio recording (software, hardware and recording equipment). Then various techniques for publishing and distributing podcasts are explored. The paper also presents free podcast hosting sites and gives tips about copyright law and how it applies to podcasting. Practical file management strategies, including using iTunes to organize audio files, are also discussed. After building a solid technical foundation, the thesis turns to the way in which podcasting can be used at school. This chapter introduces the reader to a variety of podcasting lessons that can motivate the students.

Lesson Plan from the year 2009 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,7, University of Marburg (Fachbereich für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: New Media in Foreign Language Education, language: English, abstract: This teaching unit has been designed for eighth graders at the gymnasium who learn English as a first foreign language. The unit contains six lessons of 45 minutes each. The general aim is to learn what podcasting is about, how to listen and subscribe to specific podcasts, and the most important point: How to create ones own podcasts and how to share them with students from a twinned school. After the six lessons the teaching unit won’t be finished. What follows is a steady setting-up of a correspondence between two twinned schools that is to say the German school, and a school from the USA. In this term paper we will discuss what podcasting is in general and which learning possibilities we will have for the students when working with podcasts in the 8th class of a Hessian Gymnasium. In the next chapter we will contrast the New Media with traditional teaching methods and point out some advantages concerning the teaching project. Afterwards the requirements for the students and the learning objectives will shortly be illustrated. In chapter six we will investigate the curricular connections of the given teaching unit and finally chapter seven gives a detailed description of the teaching unit. In the appendix one will find the six session plans.
