Have You Ever Listened To A Podcast? Use "Listen Notes" To Find the Perfect Podcast For You In the New Year!
I recently attended a High School Scholar's Bowl competition. One of the participating students asked another, how they had acquired the knowledge to correctly answer so many of the questions...thus, ultimately winning the round. The answer was...reading books and listening to podcasts!
Today, I would like to share with you this great podcast search engine, called Listen Notes. The websites boasts that there are 421, 035 Podcasts and 23,118,712 Episodes available to choose from! Podcast tags can be seen in the image below. The tags/categories range from the Arts, Education, Games & Hobbies, to Science & Medicine, Society & Culture... and Technology. If you like to hunt, you will find podcasts on hunting, if you would like to learn a new language, you will find foreign language learning podcasts, or if you are a history buff, you might find this podcast interesting > How Stuff Works: Stuff You Missed in History Class. No matter what you are interested in learning more about, you will most likely be able to find it on Listen Notes.
Why are podcasts a great learning tool? Podcasts are online narratives, that convey stories. These stories can affect us emotionally, which in turn, create deeper learning experiences for the listener. These deeper learning experiences can ultimately help us answer a variety of questions, as referenced above, at a Scholar's Bowl competition!
Would you like to create your own podcast? See this article for more information. This is a great example of a podcast series, created by Brattleboro Union High School students, called Tracking The Tracks.
