I’ve had a bunch of podcasting resources at The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English, and thought it would be useful to move them over to their own “Best” list, as well as add new resources (please suggest more):

Winners of Our First-Ever Student Podcast Contest is from The NY Times Learning Network.

PodOmatic looks like an extraordinarily easy way to create a podcast. Sign-up and your class has your own channel — all you need is a computer microphone.

A teacher’s guide to using audio and podcasting in the classroom is a nice overview of applications to use in the classroom, including videos. It was created by Kit Hard.

SoundCloud lets you very easily record an audio message and then you can post the link or embed it where you like.

Spreaker seems like a pretty easy way to have your own Internet radio show.

Anchor is an easy tool for creating podcasts.  You can read more about it at Richard Byrne’s blog.

THE EDUBLOGGER’S GUIDE TO PODCASTING is a great post from The Edublogger.

Project Audio: Teaching Students How to Produce Their Own Podcasts is from The NY Times Learning Network.

The Basic Ingredients for Your Podcast Recipe is from The NY Times.

NPR announced a new cool student podcast contest. It’s a great idea. Unfortunately, however, they are only going to choose two winners. They should learn from The NY Times Learning Network about the value of having multiple contest winners. One great thing they are offering, though, is a huge resource to help students create their podcasts, and those will be useful even to students not participating in the contest:
