Adele Strange (AS), teacher and ICT Coordinator at Bateau Bay Public School on the NSW Central Coast, has been creating podcasts with her students for the school’s radio show.
T4L: How would you suggest getting the most out of the RØDEcaster Pro? AS: Sell a kidney or whatever it takes and get a RØDECaster Pro set-up! Prepare well so you know how to model use of the RØDECaster Pro, then pass on your knowledge quickly and let the students do the rest. Plan your role well as a facilitator. Most of the time, the students drive the process but especially with primary-aged students, there are times when the teacher will need to guide the process.
T4L: What are your future plans? AS: I have been working with Stage 3 intervention groups that have between 4 and 8 students. Next year I hope to work with Stage 3 again to see if we can make the project work with a whole class. I have several teachers offering to be the 'guinea-pig' class. I hope to be able to do some whole-school PL for teachers with the aim that the technology will be used by teachers across the school in classrooms. We are at the beginning of our journey with this tech and it is exciting to imagine the ways it can be used in the future.
T4L: Thank you, Adele and Bateau Bay Public School!
