Podcasts are quite a popular thing now. Their use in education is not! So, we took this task in hand and in the last 10 months of an exact lockdown in education, we have been able to train a few thousand teachers across the country into EduPodcasting. Then came this mission of launching the pioneer online course (MOOC) on Podcasts in Education. So here it is, completing its first batch.
Apps that Speak are on the rise. We get to see a new App to record voice and broadcast, every day. It is the season of bloom for the music apps and podcasting is not an unknown term anymore. We know Gaana, SoundCloud, Spotify, Anchor, RadioPublic, Google Podcasts and Podbean etc. What is there for Education in this boom of yet another technology product? Of course- Opportunity and Advantage!
Podcasting has got the desired momentum and mention now. It was Covid Lockdown that gave me the baton of EduPodcasts. With thousands of teachers informed, trained and supported via online workshops, this is the time to see the fruits. Fortunately, there are a good number of teachers becoming Podcasters.
Google Suite, popularly known as G-Suite, is a comprehensive educational and business solution for digital or virtual management of the institution. Not just with the e-mail ids on the organisational domain, we also get a lot more features in the G-Suite for Education. There are some unique and useful features that we get in this suite.
We all carry a certain amount of hope in us. When we don’t see our efforts fulfilling enough, we instil hope that some divine intervention shall assist us to pass through the modern world Bermuda Triangle. The crisis has been in education where things have been caged for a few and there remains a vacuum to be filled.
आप जिस भी दुनिया में अपने आपको मानते हों - साइबर जगत में तो आपकी एक नागरिकता बन ही जाती है। या तो आप बहुत अच्छे से वेब पर सब कर लेते हैं या मदद लेते हैं या फिर किसी अनावश्यक परेशानी में फंस जाते हैं। आप कोई भी हो सकते हैं: एक शिक्षक, विद्यार्थी या फिर किसी स्कूल के संचालक भी।
The 21st Century has brought us face-to-face with the most advanced technologies. This interaction and collaboration have actually taken place in education. The classroom has become the canvas where we see the technologies and innovations getting integrated through the zeal of the teacher. There is one resource, which came into existence in the 21st century itself but still less used by us. It is even more ignored in Education, where it should be brought to the forefront. This is PODCASTING.
From July 2009 to December 2015, my life was full of accomplishments that were learning gifts from my students at Amity University Noida. The tenure was designated as a faculty but the experience was of a different nature. It could not remain confined to the narrow walls of stereotyped instructions.
Parenting can never be a template-based job. The one who is in the shoes of a parent knows what responsibility and challenge are at hand. When we talk about Parenting Tips, what comes to mention is the maturity and empathy one needs to have as a human being. We are presenting here a small series of insights by Dr Aarti and Sh. Amit Dagar from the Vidyantriksh School, Bhiwani.
It is never too late for a new beginning. And when it is the right thing at the right time, we shall call it a win-win for all. The 21st Century has opened those horizons of advantages and opportunities which will surely take us to victorious destinations in Education. Using Technology in education is a default thing and we may never be surprised at this sync, as it is but natural. Podcasting, the new name for 'Audio Blogging' is the new IN THING in Education now, so will be PodMOOCs.
Apna Radio aka Our Radio is just a random shot to the galaxy of professional Podcasters and we are sure to grab a few shining stars with this out-of-the-way thing. The show was recorded without a given script and the surprised-but-smart people participated with a happy heart.
