Hidden Gems on PSU Podcasting

As I was browsing through the Podcasts at Penn State analytics data for the week I noticed a huge jump in the number of visits (about 2,000 additional for the week). When I jumped over to the specific page that was getting all the hits I was surprised to see the “Honey Bees in Crisis” podcast being done by Carla Zimbal-Saul and her students. Really well done and pulling in some major attention and traffic. It is well worth a visit!

I am heading to Apple with Carla and some of her colleagues from the PSU College of Education very soon to talk to them about some of the great work that is being done in our College of Ed. Things like this show just how well they are at integrating technology in appropriate ways to support teaching and learning. I’d love to get Carla to do a guest post on the project … I wonder if she would consider that?

  1. Can’t believe the traffic this project is getting! Trust me — it has everything to do with the issue of Colony Collapse Disorder. Just notice the play CCD is getting in the news lately. What I am excited about it that students are experiencing the benefits of an education at a Research I institution. They have access to the science/scientists behind a real world problem. The Podcasting at Penn State project has given us an outlet that makes sense — educating the public about the issues and various hypotheses being investigated. Really interested to see where this all leads. Check out the first student-produced episode this week. They should follow about every week from here on out.
