Here is a quick take from the article:
Some education podcasts are produced by high school and middle school teachers reaching out to other teachers on ways to connect with less-than-engaged students. Eric Langhorst, a junior high history teacher in Liberty, Mo., uses his podcast, Speaking of History, to hook students who dislike history but love their iPods.
"(The dislike) comes from the way history is traditionally presented in classrooms," Langhorst says. "Students like history when they see a program on TV or go to a museum or hear a story. Once you get them hooked, the story of American history is very engaging."
You can read the entire article online here at the USA Today site. If you are a first time visitor as a result of the article welcome to Speaking of History where the topics are generally a combination of technology, education and history.
