"One Minute How To" Podcasting

I did a search on Podcast Pickle for various podcasts that I thought could be helpful to me as an educator. I was surprised how interested I became in the "one minute how to" section for educators. I felt that many of the podcasts listed here, such as: "how to write a haiku", "how to write a 100 word story", "how to write a poem", and "how to write a funny song" were wonderful tutorials that could easily be used in a classroom. Although I never thought of using podcasts in my own classroom I feel these "one minute how to's" would be a fantastic way to mix things up in an English or writing class. Students could listen to the speaker's suggestions then give the task a try themselves.

The "how to" podcasts cover such a variety of topics I could never listen to them all. However I did feel that students could be assigned to create a "one minute how to" podcast of their own to post on this website. Every student is good as something and this could be a great motivator to show student how to do a self-examination to decide what their good at, use their words to explain in succinctly, and record it in a good oral speaking voice. This assignment could be used across the curriculum and even across grade levels.

  1. Christina,
    I love your idea of having the students create their own "how to" podcasts. This could certainly be a cross-curricular activity with learning on many levels.

  2. Or you could have then offer their one minute how-to on my podcast, One Minute How-To (http://OneMinuteHowTo.com). This would allow them to work on the creative side of things while letting someone else handle the technical aspect.
