Our Presentation at Barcamp Antwerpwritten by Stefaan Lesage on 22/03/2009
Brief summary of the presentation about podcasting I gave at Barcamp Antwerp.
For the second time I was present at a Barcamp here in Belgium, this time in Antwerp. Since I recently published an article on 'Podcasting as an Educational Tool' on our website, I decided that I could prepare a little presentation about it as well.
The presentation was just a brief summary of the article, but I did add in some examples of podcasts with educational content for each type of podcasts I mentioned in the article. I promised to put the the list online including links to their website, so here we go :
Examples of podcasts with educational content
This (Dutch) podcast is created by Maarten Hendrikx, together with his 11 to 12 year old studens. On a weekly basis they record a 15 minute podcast in which they tell a few jokes, riddles and other things.
Nothing really spectacular you would say, but by using Podcasting at an early age they actually learn a lot about podcasting, technology and things like RSS feeds, blogs, ... The Mees Podcast was actually the first Belgian Classroom Podcast.
You can find more information on the Mees Podcast on their website
The Kidcast is a podcast dedicated to learning the technology and teaching using Podcasting. A geat podcast about Podcasting in the Classroom. More information can be found on the KidCast Website

THE resource for English Macintosh Video tutorials created by Don McAllister. Years ago this actually started out as a hobby project for Don, but meanwhile it has grown into a Business for him. New tutorials are made available on a weekly basis ! If you want to have a look at the big list of available tutorials, make sure to check out the Screencasts Online Webiste.
This podcast is actually a combination between a Video podcast and a screencast. This time the topic is Digital Photography. Great tutorials on how to enhance your pictures using Photoshop and Lightroom. If you are into Digital Photography and Photoshop, make sure to have a look at the Photo Walkthrough Website.
Well, this was actually a shameless plug, since the iTutor Podcast is a personal project I started a few years ago. I noticed that there are plenty of Macintosh Video tutorials available in English, but I had a few friends which don't understand English, so I started to create a few iPhoto tutorials in Dutch / Flemish, and that is actually how the iTutor Podcast was born.

For those interested I have included a link to the presentation on Slideshare. I noticed something went wrong with a few colors when I uploaded my Keynote Presentation, so I'm still trying to fix that, but meanwhile you can already have a look at the presentation :
