Podcasting workshops

SYN runs podcasting workshops for schools, community groups and individuals, both during the school term and over the school holidays. At the end of this workshop you will have the technical and creative skills to produce, record and edit a podcast.  You will also be able to upload your podcast to the SYN website and engage with SYN’s online community of youth media makers.

A podcast is a digital media file—or a series of such files—that is  distributed over the internet using syndication feeds, for playback on portable media players and personal computers. You can listen to some of the podcasts created by SYN workshoppers here.

Steps to podcasting

Preparing = listening to podcasts and thinking about the kind of podcast you will make
Planning = creating, outlining, and scripting your ideas and materials

Recording = producing high quality audio

Editing = cleaning up and shaping your podcast
= assessing and revising the final podcast
Publishing = uploading your podcast and setting up RSS feeds

You will work in groups of 2 or 3 to make one podcast composed of several linked segments.  Each person will present a segment as well as to help with the production of the rest of the podcast.
