Learner-Created Podcasts: Students' Stories with Music
Bolden, Benjamin
Music Educators Journal, v100 n1 p75-80 Sep 2013
This article describes uses for podcasts in music education, focusing on learner-created podcasts as an opportunity for students to construct and represent knowledge. The author outlines a podcast assignment that enables secondary and postsecondary students to examine and more deeply understand the meaning music holds for them and the role it has played in their lives. Using audio editing technology, students describe significant music experiences and combine spoken-word narration with illustrative music excerpts to create an audio documentary. Student benefits of engaging in the podcast creation process (e.g., opportunities for active music listening, enhanced reflection, self-expression, enriched communication, increased self-knowledge, and creativity) are addressed in the conclusion.
