Sound Stage: Podcast

Arts Centre Melbourne

Podcasting is an incredible vehicle for sharing ideas and stories – there are no limits to the world of information the podcast universe offers. Students bring their own writing to The Channel, to be recorded and polished into a final product that can be shared with friends, family and the school community.

Students will use computers to record their voice, edit the recordings and choose sound effects and music to enhance their work. This is a great opportunity for your students to develop a practical outcome with strong links to your curriculum. Please contact us if you would like to discuss the writing task before the workshop. If you do not want to do your own writing task, your students can read a script provided by The Channel Educators.

Students may work in pairs and must bring a piece of writing per pair of no longer than 200 words for the 1.5-hour workshop or 400 words for the 3-hour workshop.
