This week I interviewed three eighth graders about their use of technology at home and in the classroom. I did not have the ability to record their voices in the podcast so I recorded their answers and read the information myself on the podcast. I ended up doing three different podcasts, one for each interview, because it was easiest for me, since I didn't have any experience. I used Podomatic to record and post my podcasts and I must say that this site was VERY easy and user friendly. In fact, I really enjoyed doing this assignment because it was really fun and I actually might even start podcasting for fun. The URL for my Podomatic site is http://www.podomatic.com/ and here are the three URL's for my podcast interviews, http://cmoyer6.podomatic.com/entry/2011-08-02T21_03_14-07_00, http://cmoyer6.podomatic.com/entry/2011-08-02T21_19_40-07_00, and http://cmoyer6.podomatic.com/entry/2011-08-02T21_29_21-07_00. From these interviews, you will see that they all have different amounts of access to technology but they do have many similar experiences using technology. I would definitely say that they are all Digital Natives, but with varying amounts of experience.
So check them out and you should try to create your own podcast. It is INTERESTING AND FUN!!
