2 free apps to help teachers with podcasting in the classroom

 

podcasting in the classroomWe’ve talked about using podcasting in the classroom before—you can read more about why and how you can use them by clicking here and here—but it seems like there’s a cheaper and more convenient alternative every month. This month, we found two more podcasting apps that we felt deserved your attention.

podcasting in the classroomRecord MP3 is by far the most user-friendly podcasting app that we’ve come across and you don’t need to create a user account or download anything to use it. All you need is a microphone (you may have one already built into your computer) and a little creativity. Simply click on the record button and start talking. When you’re done, you’ll receive a link that you can email or post to your blog.

podcasting in the classroom 2We like AudioPal for the same reasons we like Record MP3, but we’re fond of the added flexibility this little app gives us. Record your message using a phone, text-to-speech (up to 600 characters), a microphone, or upload your own audio message in mp3 form. Once you’re done recording, preview it. If it passes muster, enter your email address, click on “Get It!” and you’ll receive a link to your audio player along with an embed code so you can post it to your blog, website, or social media page.

To learn more about how you can use podcasts in the classroom, check out three of our recent blogs, Looking for book report alternatives? Try podcasting apps instead!,  Going Paperless: Podcasting your Students' Progress Reports, and Principal Podcasts: a free and timely way to connect with parents.
