Motivating Students: Classroom Podcast

Tools for the TeksClassroom Audio Podcasting. ‘Education in the twenty-first century should focus on the development of authentic literacy skills for students. Learning to read, write, listen, speak, critically analyze information and communicate ideas using a variety of modalities is vital for children of all ages. Some of the most frequent complaints of writing teachers, however, revolve around a lack of student motivation to write. How can teachers increase students’ desire to express themselves effectively and appropriately? One of the most basic and powerful ways to increase student motivation to write and communicate is to change student perceptions of the audience. Some students are motivated to write to please their teacher and earn a high-grade, but that is not the case for everyone. Instead of asking students to write exclusively for an audience of one (the teacher) using technology from the mid-1500s (a pencil) teachers can now challenge students to publish for a global listening audience via a classroom podcast.’
