513 Week 9 Intro to Blended Classrooms Podcast Series

I am starting to like Audacity more and more each day.  I even figured out how to cut unwanted pauses and filler words our of my podcast.  I did include music, but I used a rough work around.  I will work on the fade in and out next time.

As my podcast explains, our school is working towards a 1 to 1 model that we hope to implement in the 2015-2016 school year.  My podcast series is designed for our faculty members who may not be well versed in educational technology and blended schools specifically.  My first podcast is an overview of blended classrooms, the concepts we hope to incorporate  the misconceptions in regards to a blended online environment, and the jargon that is used in the EdTech world.

As for the AECT standards, I have labeled the ones that I think apply.  I think that 2.4 is the most applicable because it is the first time I have used a pure audio recording to deliver a message.  In additional, that audio recording, or podcast is being made available through my use of Dropbox and my blog.  It's amazing how it all comes together.
