Our Web 2.0 Part 2 Moodle course provided some wonderful discussion on useful Math podcasts. Why reinvent the wheel? Here are some of the resources (with descriptions) that were provided from teachers enrolled in the course. Use these as mini lessons, reviews, independent study pieces, or to clear up common misconceptions.
- The Orff Site Show: This website will be useful to me in helping me find new lessons to incorporate Orff (a method of teaching music) into my classroom. I am Orff level I certified and this will help me reinforce my skills before moving on to the next level of cedrtification. The students will benefit from this site through the lessons I teach in the classroom using group work & individual work based on the lessons I learn from this site.
- From the Top at Carnegie Hall: this program interviews and plays performances from young, talented musicians. I will use this in assignments for my older children so that they can see the opportunities that exist for those who choose a career in music. It will make music and musicians more relevant in their lives.
- NPR Live Concerts & Radio Disney will both give me new listening examples, music for compare and contrast activities and for listening journals for grades 3-5. (also check out Disney on Broadway).
Some of these podcasts can be subscribed to which will feed into iTunes, others can be saved as an audio or movie file and imported into iTunes, and some are even bundled as an app. Please post others you find in the comments section along with a description and/or how they can be used.
