Episode 17: Student Podcasting with Flipboard and Soundtrap


“Isn’t this a perfect time to gather all the students in your class and teach them how to podcast?”I asked Randy Marble, band director, and Jennifer Kincannon, English teacher at *Columbia High School* ( https://chs.cbisd.com/ ) , where we all work, that exact question a couple of weeks ago. Then it hit me: if I’m going to practice what I preach, I need to preach less to the choir. So instead, I pitched this idea to our principal, Scott Moody, who in turn mentioned it to our superintendent, Steven Galloway of *Columbia Brazoria ISD* ( https://www.cbisd.com/ ). After a vision casting session, a great program was born: we will have students make a podcast!In this episode of the Flipboard EDU podcast, I invited Randy and Jennifer to detail how we will enlist our students to record a podcast. Jennifer has been an English teacher for seven years and has worked in education for 13 years. Under her leadership, students have won awards in the *University Interscholastic League competition* ( https://www.uiltexas.org/journalism/uil-contests ). Randy has been an educator for 35 years, starting out as a youth minister and working as a band director for the last 18 years. He is also an avid Flipboard user. We discuss the tools we will be using, like Soundtrap and Flipboard, how they enhance teaching and learning in the 21st century and boost student engagement.Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3
