Thing #21: Podcasts and Audio Books

Although I have done podcasts before, I am not what I would call proficient--the kids are MUCH better at it than I! Since I will not have a regular class with 4th and 5th grade students in the library this year, I thought it would be fun to do a podcast that introduces them to the new library features this year and gives them a library tour. We are writing a grant to purchase i-pods or mp3 players for our students to use in the library, so this will be a good intro to them!
We spent most of today creating our photostory and recording it.When we tried to upload to Switchpod, we ran into major problems. The site would not respond to our registration and finally I sent an e-mail to their support staff. The response time is supposed to be 2 hours--at this posting it has been over 3 hours and I still have not heard from them. We will need to find another hosting site or not complete this thing!

The podcast "thing" was really intimidating me. I, too, had some trouble, but everything did work out, and I hope it goes well for you, too!
