Sound Stage: Podcast

Arts Centre Melbourne

Share your ideas with the world!

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 work on a script at school which they bring 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.

Examples of Podcasts made at The Channel by tertiary students for the Australian Music Vault are available here.
