This is a brief interview with Ben Williams, the ICT Co-ordinator from St Marks Junior School in Salisbury in Wiiltshire.

Ben has been using podcasting as a means of engaging pupils and improving their literacy for well over a year. He shares some of the reasons why podcasting is so powerful, especially with a simple tool like Podium that is suitable for non-ICT specialists and specialists alike.

In this episode I was delighted to talk with Simon Mills from Teyfant Primary School in Bristol about his experience using recorded audio and podcasting with his Y3 class. Simon’s blog is well-read, and his class podcasts are also an essential listen, especially after you’ve heard Simon tell the story behind the making of the ‘Baby Bear’s Christmas Kiss’ episode.

Simon explains how the self-reflection process within podcasting transformed the self-confidence of a group of children when speaking in front of an audience at their Christmas show, with much positive parental feedback.
