Minecraft for Learning

This video podcast was designed to help middle school students understand a news article to be used for reading and speaking.  The show provides an explanation about making questions and the article.

The primary motivation for doing a video podcast rather than an audio podcast was to apply multimedia principle.  Being that the students are second language learners, having visual references would help them understand important concepts such as a key sentence structure and roman architecture.

I used Captivate to screen record my narration and the news article. I used Sony Movie Studio to add images and split the audio track and place them in opposite ends of the time line to serve as the intro and outro music.  Vodcast Episode 1 Minecraft for Learning
