Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

For the last 7 years, I have had the opportunity to create audio and video podcasts and share my passions with the world. Due to an overwhelming amount of emails and questions from the educational community, I created a section of TeacherCast called where I share best practices on creating media projects and provide tips and tricks for working with students using digital media. This session is designed not only as a mini-lecture, but also in a Q&A style format where the audience and I will openly discuss these topics. With the provided time, the audience will form small groups and with a given topic, create their own podcast and perform it in front of everyone. Together, we will learn what makes digital media a vital part in not only the flipped classroom model, but an activity that reaches the most advanced stages of Blooms, SAMR, and the 4C’s.
