Our first Podcast!

Well, here it is, our very first podcast! The podcast group at International School Dhaka in Bangladesh has put together a test episode in order to trial the technology become familiar with the process involved in creating a final podcast product.
So, how did we do it?
First of all we used Audacity for all of the digital recording, editing and mixing. We also used archive.org to find music that was suitable for use over the Internet and to upload our podcast episode. To add an RSS subscription feed to this blog we used feedburner.com. Simple, right?

If you are keen to learn more about this mysterious thing called a 'Podcast' we suggest you read the information provided by Tony Vincent's 'Podcasting in Education' web pages at learninginhand.com. He provides a great resource and explains how to find, subscribe to, listen to and create podcasts.

OK, so here it is: Podcast Bangladesh 01

• Vincent fills us in on DT at ISD
• Victor tells us a little about the handheld initiative in the middle school
• Violet and Nurain provide introductory material and program ID's

To hear the program you can click on the link and the mp3 file will play on your computer, or you can download the file by right clicking then saving it on a hard drive ready to transfer to an mp3 player. Better still, read about RSS and subscribe to Podcast Bangladesh via your iTunes software or free aggregator web page such as bloglines.com.

Hello from International School Dhaka!

Welcome to our Podcast Bangladesh blog. We aim to bring regular news and interest stories from our school and the wider community here in Bangladesh. We also hope to master podcasting and be part of the international podcasting community. In the words of David Warlick in Classroom Blogging about podcasting, "This is new and simply too much fun".
Here is a picture of the front of our school. We are a world International Baccalaureate school offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). Our students are mostly local Bangladeshis with others from India, Malaysia, china, Korea and other places.
