Does Podcasting Enhance Oral Literacies?

The image “http://farm1.static.flickr.com/26/94439528_af1ce3378d.jpg?v=0” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.I met Jane Nicholls while working in Dunedin, New Zealand a few months ago, and was so impressed with the enthusiasm of teachers there.  The job seemed to be “fun” for them.

Jane is currently researching the benefits of podcasting and has asked me to forward a request for participation in her research project.

*** ICT U Can!: A request for help:

I am currently undertaking research looking at the question:

In what ways does podcasting enhance oral literacies?

I have been gathering data in my own context but I would love to hear what other teachers have found when using podcasting in their classroom programme and add voices from further a field into my final write up.

I hope that you can help her with this very important question.
