NYTimes: Teaching Students How to Produce Their Own Podcasts

Note: For those teachers who may be technophobes, please don’t be intimidated by this technology-dependent lesson. Programs for audio editing are intuitive and easy-to-use, especially for many students. If you are a novice to audio recording, you may want to attempt to create your own one-minute podcast as a way to experience firsthand what students will encounter during the process.
