How to record your students and produce podcasts

The easiest way to produce podcasts is to use the program Audacity (free software). There are several tutorials on the web, but the only thing you have to remember is to save (export) the file as "mp3" format.

Then, you can upload the produced podcast to a web site, for example a wiki, or any sites that host mainly podcasts like Podomatic

Podcasts Workshop (in Spanish)

As a teacher you probably have lot of ideas to make pupils produce podcasts. Here you are only two examples
- Give pupils an example and ask them to produce something similar or perhaps different, but using the example as a model.

- Ask them to write a text about any topic and them prepare an interview based on it.
