    Podcasting is easy for me, I am on a mac so make one on garage band 3. If on a PC it is a little trickier... Classblogmeister does not host the podcast (just like doesn't host the photos, you need flickr etc) so you have to have somewhere to put them - I host mine on our school website ...
    You can use imovie and upload it as a quicktime then copy and paste the www url of where it is hosted to put in your blog (in the podcast space). You can host movies on 'teacher tube' but not sure about podcast hosting .... podomatic some use but it is a little clunky.

    We teach the kids to choose a template, add a title, write about the blogger and then how to post an article. After a few articles we teach pictures. I upload the pics to Flickr - tip upload small sizes otherwise you will use your 10mb allowance quickly.
    I export the slide from kidpix to iphoto and then upload from iphoto straight to flickr. Mine are jpeg. No need to print or scan ...

    The map we use is called ClustrMaps and we also use Site meter. To add the world map you can get your own clustr map (click the links for teachers on the left of my class blog page - link at the bottom of this email). Then copy and paste the html code into the bottom of your 'about the blogger' box. It usually takes about 48 hours to go 'live'.
    http://del.icio.us/koobi/blog is a link to some things blogging.

    To upload photos you need a flickr account (they are free). Then if you download the browser 'flock' for a mac it is as easy as drag and drop from your flickr to your blog article.
    All the help for this can be found by logging on as a teacher to your page, then clicking on 'documentation'.
    We use a browser called Flock and this makes adding photos easier.

    The creator David Warlick
    David was a keynote speaker at learning@school 07.
    David Warlick's unique voice and message combine a wide range of experiences, both in and outside the education arena. He ran two businesses before graduating from high school and spent more than a year in manufacturing before completing his undergraduate work. He worked for nearly ten years as a middle school social studies, math, and science teacher, during which he also wrote award-winning instructional software and introduced hundreds of teachers to the educational potentials of desktop computers.
    In 1984, David moved to a central office position, as Director of Technology and then on to the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction where he served as a technology integration consultant and built the nation's first state department of education web site.
    Since 1995, Mr. Warlick has been the owner and principal consultant of The Landmark Project, a professional development, web design, and innovations firm in Raleigh North Carolina. During this time David has spoken at conferences and delivered workshops for educators in nearly every state of the U.S. and audiences in Europe, Asia, and South America.
    David Warlick has been an innovator and leader in the field of educational technology and a prolific programmer, writing some of the most popular interactive web tools available for teachers on the Internet - most of them free. He created and maintains the second oldest continuing online project, Global Grocery List, and writes for publications that include Technology & Learning Magazine, ALA?s KnowledgeQuest, Education World, and CUE Online. He has also written three books about modern technologies in education and contemporary literacy, and he has been quoted in Education Week, The San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Times, Washington Post, and USA TODAY.
    What makes David a highly effective and sought-after speaker is that, at heart, he is a teacher with a contagious passion and enthusiasm for helping people discover a brand new world of teaching and learning.
