Creating a Podcast for Change

Learning about complex issues is important! We have created a step by step Podcast project as an "Engage, Investigate and Act" activity. We take you through the process using "Food Banks" as our Big Idea - but any issue would fit. View our overview video and then download a wealth of resources in a Gr. 5 kit on iPad and a Gr. 11 kit on a Mac. We supply "How to" videos for editing in GarageBand on both platforms, grade appropriate assessment tools, keeping on track checklists, Ministry expectations - even Media Release forms. Get your kids involved in their community and empower them with the understanding that well researched knowledge can create positive change.

Thank you both for sharing this well thought out and robust resource to use podcasts as tools for change. I love that it leads participants through challenge based learning throughout. These fun instructional videos will surely encourage teachers to consider using podcasts as a vehicle for students to investigate community and societal needs.

What a fantastic idea and project, Kelly!

I love the use of GarageBand to record student podcast to give voice to young learners and bring about positive change! Wonderful work!

Thanks for this post Kelly! I love the way you’ve set up your Keynote slides - very clever idea! Also this is a wonderful example of using segments of Challenge Based Learning #CBL to achieve change and involve learners in their community.

Do you think you could also post this over in the Challenge Based Learning Central section of our Community Forum? I know if folks are browsing for Challenge Based Learning examples that they would appreciate learning about your podcast project.
