I’ve always wanted to start a podcast with my students. The stress of finding a site to host, finding music, and sending it to iTunes made it a little to intimidating for me. This summer I found Anchor when listening to an episode of Gary Vanerchuck‘s podcast. I checked it out, and I very quickly discovered that this platform has tremendous potential in the classroom. Anchor is a free app that can be found in both the Apple and Google Play stores.
It isn’t perfect, but I guess nothing is. I wish you could pay to remove the Anchor branding from the beginning and end of the podcast, but that seems like a fair price to pay for a free service.
I made a little video showing just how easy it is to use Anchor.
If you’d like to hear the sound quality and the look of an Anchor show sent to iTunes and Google Play, you can click on the link below and listen to the show I created: Reading With Mr. Sharp.
If you have any questions or ideas about using Anchor please leave a comment below, or send me an email. I’d love to learn and grow with you!
