Welcome to Podcasting!

This site will direct you to creating a lesson with Podcasting.  Podcasting is a great way to get students to learn about a lesson, collaborate information learned in the class, or just go over what happened throughout the day.  It is a fun way for students to become engaged and be creative with the curriculum taught in class.  Hopefully, by the end of this, you will have one Podcast under your belt to use for future classes!
