Podcasts are audio recordings that can be downloaded from the internet. With less than a handful of mouse clicks, students can create concise 90 second podcasts that demonstrate their knowledge on a particular subject. Post student podcasts to a free Wikispace wiki and create a gallery of podcasts where students can listen, learn, and discuss each others podcasts. Podcasts could summarize a scientist's research, describe a species, or follow the metamorphosis of a butterfly... the sky is literally the limit.
