PODCASTING FOR FOREIGN-LANGUAGE EDUCATION
A Globe-Gate CALL Resource

The RSS cencept webfeed with XML format which we now call "podcasting" has been visible since early 2001, though the term was originally coined in 2004 by Ben Hammersley in an article in The Gardian.  Podcasting and the extension of what was formerly just a great MP3 device (the iPod) is an irresistably tempting resource for foreign-language educators.  As I take my first steps into this domain, I want to offer a page on Podcasting for foreign-language educators.  As we once felt it made good sense for students to use the familiar personal computer in their training, now the same reasons impel us to explore the possibilities of the iPod and podcasting.
