Welcome to "Dr. G's Notes". This is my attempt at Blogging (a techie term for a weblog/blog). I will try to share current thoughts, news and other items I feel will be of interest to my students, colleagues, friends and family. If you would like to contact me, simply e-mail me at genzuk@usc.edu

What is a weblog/blog? A blog is a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically -- like a what's new page or journal. The content and purposes of blogs varies greatly -- from links and commentary about other web sites, to news about a company/personal/idea, to diaries, photos, poetry, mini-essays, project updates, even fiction. Blogs posts are like instant messages to the web. Many blogs are personal, "what's on my mind" type musings. Others are collaborative efforts based on a specific topic or area of mutual interest. Some blogs are for play. Some are for work, some are both.




View or Listen to Dr. Genzuk's "Podcasts"


"Dr. G's Web Commentary"

http://web.mac.com/genzuk/



Here you will find access to my "Podcasts." I have started podcasting on some of my current work. These podcasts focus on the inclusion of multimedia literacy across the teacher education curriculum, its' place in teacher education pedagogy, its' role in K-12 classrooms as a tool for teachers, and as one of the multiple literacies students must master to be prepared for the 21st century. I will also be providing podcasts on additional issues including topics on second language acquisition and language minority eduction.

What is a podcast? Podcasting is the distribution of audio or video files, such as radio programs or videos, over the Internet for listening on mobile devices such as iPods and personal computers. Podcasting is a word coined in 2004 that combined two words: "iPod" and "broadcasting." While the name has primarily been associated with audio, video has taken its place along side. Usually, the podcast features one type of "show" with new episodes either sporadically or at planned intervals such as daily, weekly, etc. There are many podcast networks that feature multiple shows on the same feed. Podcasting's essence is about creating content (audio or video) for an audience that wants to listen when they want, where they want, and how they want. Take a look!
