Here’s a wasted opportunity.
Amazing Grades have a series of podcasts done on a range of topics and you can preview them here.
Is it too much to expect that if you get Harry Hill to do a podcast on Galen that it might be funny? I’m not being trivial here. I was quite excited about listening to this podcast and I imagine that a lot of kids would be grabbed by the possibility, too. How many would switch off and do something else after 2 minutes of listening to Harry reading off a dry, uninspiring script?
Here’s a tip: If you’re getting into podcasting materials for your students think about the quality of the writing. Just sticking you talking onto an MP3 in the hope that it will find its way onto their iPods might be a waste of time.
Don’t be afraid to be funny, controversial even a little dramatic. A little cheese sometimes goes a long way.
