Barry, and others,

I am really enjoying the podcast "Adventures in Transformative
Learning," which revolves around adult learning. I am hoping there
are more Podcasts like this out there... does anyone know of other
literacy or ABE podcasts available on the Net?

Here's a short list of podcasts in adult education, some for
students, some for teachers, some for both.

What would you add to this list?

What is a Podcast?

Podcasting makes audio files, usually in MP3 format, available for
download
so you can listen at your convenience. You don't need an IPod; any
computer
media player can play the files. For students, podcasts are
particularly useful for ESOL
learning. You can connect to others' lessons or create your own.

Commercial site. They charge for Learning Guides but offer podcasts
free.

Festival of Literacies Podcasts
http://www.literaciesoise.ca/podcast.htm

A podcast project for adult literacy undertaken in Canada by the
Festival of Literacies, sponsored by the Adult Learning Knowledge
Centre, an initiative of the Canadian Council on Learning, a
national, non-profit, independent organization committed to improving
learning for all Canadians. There are four podcasts. Of the four,
the first one, Talking with Fran and Judi, has very good subject
matter, but very poor sound quality. The other three have higher
quality audio.The goal of the podcasts was to capture research in
practice knowledge.
