Being downloadable to mobile devices makes podcasts a very effective new way of sharing information for busy people; like working parents or teachers wanting to keep up on the very latest educational trends, no matter what corner of the globe they hail from.
Podcast was declared 'Word of the Year 2005' by editors of the New Oxford American Dictionary, and has become so well accepted, as to have generated The Annual Podcast Awards given in dozens of categories including education. Viewing podcasts from a pedagogic standpoint, they are used most successfully by educators for the dissemination of information around the world, motivation of students and teachers, and verbal feedback.
Through podcasting, experts in early childhood educational programs, such as Helen Doron Early English, can reach out on a more personal level to address micro-issues - more specific items of interest to parents and teachers than are usually covered in standard white papers or abstracts available online. Helen Doron podcasts can touch-upon a wide range of topics in a single episode, such as the role of play, parental interaction with kids, classroom discipline etc., and encompass many relevant fields of expertise such as child development, language acquisition, physical education, and neuroscience to name a few.
Not only do Helen Doron early childhood education podcasts bring up issues that specifically affect young children, their families and teachers, it also allows for a more interactive listening experience. It gives parents and teachers a voice, so they can learn from each other, exchange ideas and get responses to feedback about issues that really matter to them. In addition, they enjoy sharing what they know about working with the exclusive Helen Doron Early English learning materials and methodology.
"Our podcasts generate so much enthusiasm and energy", explains Helen Doron, CEO and Founder of the Helen Doron Educational Group. "It's a popular page on our website (http://www.helendoron.com/podcast.php) where we discuss issues that are of interest to teachers, parents, students and all people who genuinely care about quality education and cognitive development for children across the globe. " Helen personally responds to the podcast questions and feedback, making it what she terms "a genuine and valued educational experience for listeners".
Helen further explains, "People respond to the podcast because for them, it's a more meaningful form of communicating than emails. We have non-stop questions, concerns and insights about language learning, pedagogic practices and child development. It's a real celebration of the importance of education". Music, rhythm, songs and chants are also a large part of the Helen Doron methodology, and special songs recorded for the learning sets are featured on the podcasts.
Podcasts are a relatively new addition to the Helen Doron Early English website, with three monthly episodes already downloadable online and of course, more to come. The Podcasts were first established by popular demand, according to Helen, "Because our Master Franchisors, Learning Center Franchisees and teachers are very big on networking, and we like to give them every opportunity to connect. Current information on early education is of vital importance to us since we are continually expanding and updating our learning programs."
The Helen Doron Educational Group stands at the forefront of innovative educational systems since 1985, providing exclusive learning programs and quality educational materials for babies, children and adolescents the world over. Our quality educational programs include Helen Doron Early English and MathRiders for inspired learning in small groups, Polly the Collie, Super-Nature and Ready Steady Move! designed for larger groups (kindergartens and schools).
