podcasting again

Aha! We are going to get to do podcasting finally - Jenny from Sitech is going to help us with some 'stuff' and Mrs McCullagh has found us these instructions:

http://www.apple.com/support/garageband/podcasts/recording/

All of a sudden it seems possible. Now we just have to decide on the content and format of our podcasts.

Shall we do news reports? [probably not appropriate as they are too quickly out of date]

Promos for Hamilton for our inquiry unit?

Book reviews?

Oral myths relating to the Waikato or other natural phenomena important to us?

We will need to include musical jingles, have a name for our podcast, and follow a format that we can use each time.

We should make the jingle on garageband,as I'm sure someone would be willing to use their creative and interesting ideas!

I also think maybe we could talk a little about what is coming up and then what the results were about things happening in our school.

Or, we could do a documentary on "the life of an intermediate student" I mean who knows, it could be really fun to hear how different peoples perspectives on things are!

I think it's great that we have gone back and followed through on this as I think it will be a most interesting thing to do to see if people actually do anything with it and come up with some fantabulastical ideas!

See you at school tomorrow,

Aim

wowza! go and get your parents and show them what you have written. tell them i think it is excellent. your ideas are clearly and maturely stated, as well as interesting.
garageband jingle for sure.
discussions will behld, but i think they won't be useful for podcasting at this stage. simply not relevant to a wider audience. we need to consider who our audience are when we think of products.
your documentary idea is cracker! perhaps it could be a piece designed to advise new intermediate students what to expect and to help them get over their fears.
wow! top of the class!

Howdy! said...

Thanks for your feedback!

This was only an idea of course so it will need other people to contribute adn add their ideas also.

The additional idea to the documentary one is fantabulastical becaue I kniow that personally as a new person at peachgrove, going o intermediate was a big step, and quite scary!

That's amazing! I can't believe that we get to use a MP4! I'm looking forward to acctually podcasting soo much! Probably because we were told that we were going to do this so long ago. =)

Wat is a mp4??!?!?!?!?! Is it like a ipod video...?

street_kid said...

i am still searching but what i have found is not very useful because every site i go into i is about buying one

street_kid said...

it is the lastest on the electronic gadget and is the upgrade on the mp3 player(obviously) and can be connected to laptop, computer and tv

street_kid said...

i found as well that it is 2d and 3d but i am not absolutly this is correct.

street_kid said...

they can play movies.

street_kid said...

A web site I have just been to say that you can play games on them I think.

street_kid said...

sorry for going off the topic but i think that doing podcasting will be fun. we will be able to do alot of stuff with it

Mr Woody said...

i am glad you are enthusiastic - now start posting ideas for what we could record for podcasting. the content and how well we do it are more important than the gadgets. always remember that.

We could have a podcasts about Movie Reviews!
that would be awsome!

Mr Woody said...

good thinking ernesto - er, i mean, paradiseman

Mythril Saber said...

We could do podcasts about instructions on how to use programs or how to get PE gear and stuff like that.

Lakelane said...

i think it would be cool to do some podcasting about anything.because it would be a new experience.

laffydaffy said...

Maybe our podcasting should have a song and we do book reveiws latest movies and cds that are out. We should talk about interesting topics like who rules the world.

Mr Woody said...

brilliant ideas, one and all - keep up the good work!

blondebob said...

i deffinetly agree with howdy, having a document on the life of an intermadiate student would be interesting and educational for the year sevens of 2007

【※ 『§mr. brainy§』 ※】 said...

Yes and how miserable it would be!!! Muhahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Oooohahahahahahahahaha!!! Jokes!

dan said...

with the web site that you can go to where do you go once you are there??

dan said...

what i think we should is a review on songs so we can play it then... well something like that

【※ 『§mr. brainy§』 ※】 said...

on the news i just heard about point england thingy and about their podcasts!!

Mr Woody said...

what website, dan?
good to read your ideas, dan and brainy. dan - talk to ernie and brainy about setting up your blog. have a session at school together.

laffydaffy said...

When are we going to start podcasting Mr Woody

laffydaffy said...

No luck, the podcast takes ages to downlod so yeah, um who is going to be the first ones to podcast????????????

Mr Woody said...

let dedicate our whole term to podcasting - the topic and th ebehind th escenes work are crucial - we must analyse successful old radio format shows and copy their pattern. our content must be top notch - the podcasting is only tools and a medium - we have to make the magic ourselves.
you can do it.

i reckon that mysteriosu cat gang that is in th eclass might be first to podcast something. i can recommend good engineers to run the technology.
i can suggest willing expert mentors.
i can provide the software - but you kids have to do the work to get the results. that point england stuff works because it is quality writing and planning and researching and so forth.
learn from the experts

I'm soooooooooooooooo excited because i listened to my first podcast ever!!!!!! and i've got some tips. I listened to MuggleCast (Harry Potter news, the latest) and i've got tips just listening to it.

1. We should have backgtround music all the time.

2. We need to speak clearly so people can hear us properly.

3. make it short because mugglecast is really and you get bored easily.

Can't wait to start mr. Woody!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm soooooooooo excited.

laffydaffy said...

sorry people *make it short because Muggle Cast is really LONG
