Podcast Bangladesh at NECC06

In less than 2 weeks I will be in San Diego representing International School Dhaka at the National Educational Computing Conference hosted by the International Society for Technology in Education.

I will be presenting a concurrent session about 'Podcast Bangladesh' and look forward to meeeting other international podcasters and bloggers.

Digitales and Podcasting

The Grade 10 ICT class have spent a term developing digital stories. They have their own blog, "Digital Storytelling", to present the stories online. The stories are often of a personal nature and have taken courage as well as creativity to put together. The students have also demonstrated a willingness to want to share thier stories with friends and to have them available online.

The podcast material available with the stories is based on discussions between students as they reflect on their motivation, inspiration and process in creating the digital stories.
