Podcasting in 6th Grade

I wonder how I would have reacted if my 6th grade Science teacher, Mr. Torres (I think), gave me the chance to participate in a real-time video conference with students half a continent away.

That’s exactly what we did today in class. My 6th grade students from St. George’s College in Lima-Peru, have participated in a video conference, which is not new, but they will start working together with Chelsy Hooper from Ensworth school in Nashville, TN.

They greeted each other and exchanged brief questions and comments, to finally agree on working together in podcasts about forces and motion, and bacteria and viruses.

I’ll let you know of the results as soon as we have the audio ready and published in the collaborative wiki.

  1. It never ceases to amaze me that when you put students from around the world in front of each other, to talk that they dont get awed with it and can chat willing with 'kids stuff' from anywhere! We've been skyping with classrooms in the USA from New Zealand and even something as simple as the fact that it was Friday morning here and Thursday afternoon there was a big talking point for the 'kids'.
