Posted on Updated on

Let’s start with #2ABSOLUTELY!  WOW! Let us all go back into the classroom with a forward thinking teacher like today! A teacher embracing technology and giving us amazing, innovative ways to break up our learning experience. Many of us would definitely recall some boredom at school. There were many times when it was…simply….monotonous!

 #1 – Podcasting “Pod (iPod) and Casting (broadcasting)” – A new and innovative way to receive various types of information. Anyone can access Podcasts. You can enter a whole new world of information. Podcasting is a new media content that enables people to share their ideas globally. It is a form of media that we can listen to through our computer, an iPod (or other similar player). Whether you’re into entertainment, education, news and journalism, anyone can create and distribute their ideas. It is another amazing way to learn!
