I can see benefits to using podcasts in the classroom. It would be a great to create a podcast of yourself reading a book, and using that in a listening center. It would also be great to be able to make podcasts to give directions for small group activities. As many benefits as I see to podcasts, I really do not think I will ever make another one. It was easy to make the podcast, but I could not figure out how to publish it. I also did something wrong while registering for switchpod.com, so I had to use someone else's account to get my podcast linked to this blog.

Rollyo was much easier to use than I anticipated. I created a search roll on lesson plans for first grade. I added four sites that I used (and searched) frequently last year. Rollyo will save me lots of time because I can search just one site for the lesson plans that I want as opposed to searching all four sites! I am so glad that Library2play introduced us to this site!!
