The Process: Podcast for Teachers is produced by real educators for real educators on common office technology. The sessions are recorded on a laptop computer in a classroom at RETC's building on Fordham Road. Afterward, the recording is edited to remove coughs, "ums", and pauses as well as the noise outside our window from buses, trucks, and pedestrian traffic .
The Technology: We use a single standard Toshiba laptop to process our recording. We've experimented with a variety of audio processing software titles and will try others as part of our ongoing search for educator friendly, free or low cost resources that are easy to use and easy to learn. Currently, we are using Adobe Audition (free trial download available). Generally, we use the same software to edit that we use to record.
We'll keep you posted as we refine our process. We have proven already though, that a highly functional, eminently listenable podcast can be produced with very little investment of funds.
