A couple of posts ago, I mentioned that this site had been nominated by Edublogs for the best educational use of audio. You can now vote for this (and blogs nominated in other categories) at the 2008 Edublog Award Site. While you’re add it, put a vote in for Literary Worlds as the best educational use of a virtual world. This application is based on my dissertation work and I’ve done a ton of work inside of it–including the role-playing game Thoughtcrime.
For visitors coming from the Edublogs award site, you can check out the nominated podcast by selecting audiovisual–>podcasts from the navigation bar above. Our podcast consists of student-created audio trailers for young adult novels. You can listen to a few recent episodes here:
- Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
- Slam by Nick Hornby
Thanks for listening!
