Call for Chapters for: Podcasting in Education: Case Studies for Students and Teachers
Editor: Michael Thomas Ph.D.
Nagoya University of Commerce and Business, Japan
Proposal submission deadline: 15th March 2007
Podcasting was judged to be word of the year 2005 by the New Oxford American Dictionary. Over the last few years podcasting has grown as a phenomenon all over the world and across many subjects and areas. One of the places where it is exerting an influence is education, and many schools, colleges and universities around the world have developed podcasting projects in the arts and humanities as well as the sciences.
Podcasting in Education: Case Studies for Teachers and Students is a book project aimed at introducing the subject of podcasting by examining how to set up and develop podcasting projects. The book will be a mixture of theory and technology (how to make podcasts, its consequences for the curriculum) supplemented by many practical case studies (podcasting in action).
Podcasting in Education will be a very helpful book for students and teachers in schools, colleges and universities as it will provide comprehensive coverage of how podcasting is being used and developed in today’s classrooms and on campus. The book will be an important new publication and distributed worldwide among schools, colleges and universities. It is intended that chapters and case studies will be written in a clear style, mixing reflection on the use of the educational technology with practical examples.
This book will feature chapters and case studies (4,000-7,500 words) authored by podcasting practitioners (students, teachers and administrators) and offer an overview of the way this new web 2.0 technology is changing our educational landscape.
Proposals for chapters in the following areas are being sought:
(a) What is podcasting and how to make one (technology and equipment required)
(b) Video podcasting
(c) Podcasting in … (schools, colleges, universities)
(d) Podcasting and student motivation
(e) Podcasting and mobile learning
(f) Podcasting in my subject … (Arts and Humanities, language learning, sciences, etc)
