4. Should I plan before creating a podcast?

Planning is one of the most essential pieces to podcasting!  The planning piece takes the majority of the time when creating podcasts.  I recommend that you create a planning sheet to use for yourself and students when creating podcasts.  Writing a script is also very important!  Before your students get started, have them listen to and view other podcasts for ideas:)
