One of my favorite blogs & Podcasts is The Bowery Boys. They have a way of taking history and making it really engaging to students. I use the Bowery Boys to illustrate what podcasts are and how they work. Today the Boys are discussing Mark Twains adventures in NYC. This is a great lesson for language arts and technology teachers. The blog has a Google Map embedded into the post, use the maps features to go street view or take a virtual field trip. Use this post as a way to teach students about blogging or podcasts.
Thank you Bowery Boys for all your hard work.
