Pump up the volume

Podcasting reminds me of the movie "Pump Up the Volume," which at the time I watched because of Christian Slater, and now, in my older and wiser days, I now understand it's cultural relevance.

Pump Up the Volume was about impowerment. Christian Slater's character was just speaking over a radio and didn't really care that or if anyone was listening to him. He just had something to say and needed to get it out there. In fact when he found out people were listening it astounded him.

I will be teaching a workshop on Podcasting on Monday and have come across some really great websites that I plan on using that I's like to share:

This is a great site that illustrates how podcasting can be used to create ongoing projects.

A great collection of podcasts done by middle school students

A storehouse of educational podcasts

I hope to include more posts soon about podcasts and when I get mine up on our podcast site:
