Be sure to check out the lesson series (also linked below) Lesson 1: Storycorps Interview Reflection - Lesson 2: Practice Classmate Interview - Lesson 3: Family Oral History Interview - Lesson 4: Audio Interview Webpage.
Students will develop skills as family oral history historians and digital archivists.
Develop student listening skills as they ask open ended questions during an interview with someone else
Develop digital literacy skills focusing on audio recording and sharing
Develop respect for intellectual property and the importance of obtaining PERMISSION before taking a photo, recording a video, or making an audio recording of someone else. Also, understand the importance of sharing YOUR INTENDED AND PLANNED USE of recorded media, and obtaining subject permission to share their image / recordings publicly.
Identity and test audio recording website(s) and apps which students will use in the project.
Using MacOS (iMac) computer lab computers at school as well as (potentially) home computers, in fall 2020 we're using twistedwave.com/online. It is free and integrates well with Google Drive.
Additional audio recording apps and options are listed on showwithmedia.com/radio-show/
The teacher should test the recording procedures on the SAME computer(s) or device(s) students will use for this project in advance, to insure website/app availability, function with the school web filter, etc.
Setup a class in Google Classroom or another LMS (learning management system) where students can turn in their script, signed permission form, and final audio recording / project.
Setup a podcasting channel (like ours: anchor.fm/casady) on a web platform where student projects can be shared later
