Fall Project Ideas: YoungCast - an English/Spanish podcasting project

Young Cast

The YoungCast project is a tandem English-Spanish exchange project using audio and video podcasting to help students to exchange ideas and to improve their second language. The project aims to develop students' speaking skills and to help them to learn about each other through on-line video conferences. 

iEARN-UK and iEARN-Pangea coordinators have been developing the YoungCast project during the last three years with the main purpose of improving the communicative skills of students learning a foreign language. Participating teachers receive training and support in the use of ICT collaborative learning technology such as audio-casting, video-casting, moodle and learning blogs to bring the project to life.
