Podcasting is a great idea for the classroom. As I pointed out in my comments to reading 6, I could imagine doing a news broadcast with my students in French about what is new in their community. Every week, two students could record a podcast, we could listen to it, and do some listening activities around it. We could have literature discussions/book reviews in French Immersion class in which students present their books. Students could also do a music review podcast in which they review some of the music we listened to in French class. In social studies class, the students could do research on a topic and then interview each other on the findings. The possibilities are endless!
