Kitakyushu JALT:

Two presentations: (1) Using podcasts - even without an iPod! (2) Using your iPod in the classroom

Date: Saturday, June 10th, 2006 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Bill Pellowd, Kinki University (Iizuka)

The first presentation is on podcasts, the latest online trend. After listening to some podcast audio files, the presenters show how you can use them with students (even if you don't have an iPod). In the second presentation, discover the advantages of using an iPod in the classroom. Bill Pellowe demonstrates how to integrate the iPod into your writing, reading and speaking lessons, using an iPod to show photo slideshows and videos. He'll show how you can get your iPod to do this, too.

Bill Pellowe teaches at Kinki University in Iizuka. He produces ELT Podcast with Robert Chartrand of Kurume University.
