So, I’ve been neglecting the blog the past few weeks. The reason is that I’ve been pouring my energy in to creating a podcast called, “Middle School Art Teacher.” The name pretty well says it all. I toyed around with creative twists on my name but ended up deciding that the simple, descriptive title will do just fine.
I’m still working on finishing it up. Each episode will consist of lesson sharing, a funny, embarrassing or inspiring story from class, a problems/solutions segment and a blurb about news from the art world. I’m intending it as a “by an art teacher for art teachers” podcast, but some of you may be interested in it all the same.
You don’t need an iPod to subscribe to podcasts and I’ll make the MP3s available for download so if you’re interested, you can listen. Ok, have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
*UPDATE* Ok, the first episode is now online. I’m still working on getting it added to the iTunes Podcast Directory. But for now, you have two options: if you want to simply download it as an audio file and listen on your computer, right-click and save this file to your computer; to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, go to Advanced > Subscribe to Podcast and type this address in the dialog box that pops up – http://feeds.feedburner.com/MiddleSchoolArtTeacherPodcast
Click OK and that should allow you to download the first episode and you’ll automatically receive future episodes. I’m kind of shooting for once a week, we’ll see how that goes. The blog companion for the podcast is at MiddleSchoolArtTeacher.blogspot.com
