Seven Free Tools for the Creation of Podcasts

If  you are going to create with your class by podcasting, we propose some free tools to achieve them.  Podcast are important resources in teaching, learning and displaying mastery of content. Podcasts are very useful tools for children with specific learning disorders.

Here we provide a list of seven programs, to create and distribute podcasts.
 
-------------
MP3 Encoder: LAME 
Once you create your podcast in audacity, you need to convert it to MP3 format before you upload it to the internet. Converting your audio to MP3 makes the file size smaller and easier for others to download and listen to.
LAME is a program that works with Audacity to convert your audio to MP3.

Bring images to life with Thinglink

So many wonderful projects are being made recently using Thinglink.  It is time to showcase some of them here for you.  Perhaps they will spark a creation of your own! They are embeddable and so much fun for students and teachers alike to work on. We appreciate the ability to integrate formal writing and opportunities for further engagement with images and links that are revealed through mouseovers.



Kelsey Vroomunn uses Thinglink in her High School AP European History and French Language Classes and her blog post "Using Thinglink to prepare for the AP Cultural Comparison" exhibits some student samples.

Travel Grants enable women to attend Math Research Conferences

Grant Name:
Travel Grants

Funded by:
Association for Women in Mathematics

Description:
The objective of the NSF-AWM Travel Grants program is to enable women to attend research conferences in their fields, thereby providing a valuable opportunity to advance their research activities and their visibility in the research community. By having more women attend such meetings, we also increase the size of the pool from which speakers at subsequent meetings may be drawn and thus address the persistent problem of the absence of women speakers at some research conferences.
