I really enjoy watching both podcasts. My favorite of the two would have to be A Night in The Global Village. A Night in the Global Village is a podcast about students and teachers living the lives of someone less fortunate than them. The teachers explain to the students about the different groups of families. They explain the different conditions the students will be staying in. They place the students into groups then announced to the students which family they are. The students lived in the conditions as would the families. This was a very good experience for the students to see how others live and how blessed they are. I enjoyed this podcast most because it open my eyes upon the living conditions of others. I would like to experience what the students experienced.
Although, A Night in the Global Village is my favorite, The Edible Schoolyard was a good podcast as well. This podcast was about students at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School planting food, vegetables, fruit, etc., cooking, and eating it. The students were learning things that they don't even know they were learning. They learned how to set tables, how to eat and/or talk at a table, how to cook, how to plant food, and when to plant what. The best thing about this type of learning experience is that the students had fun learning.
The Night in the Global Village can be of use to me as a teacher by giving me an idea of a wonderful learning experience for my future students. It would also be a great podcast to show my future students. This way if my students are able to actually take part in a learning experience of this kind, they will be able to see it.
The Edible Schoolyard is a great teaching method I as a teacher can use at the school if given permission to. This podcast can be used by burrowing the ideas of these teachers and taking them inside the school and/or classroom. It can also be used by showing the students in the classroom.
