Podcasts on Latin set texts

This is just floating an idea.

The decision of QCA that set texts in Latin and Greek AS and A2 will be different means that many schools with small Sixth Form groups will no longer be able to teach set texts to both Upper and Lower Sixth students in the same class.

While we wish to fight for this decision to be reversed, we realise that a change cannot happen for several years. Meanwhile the subjects will become impossible to teach in many schools, unless new ways of individual learning are found. The Cambridge DVDs have shown how powerful IT can be where a specialist teacher cannot be there to teach a class.

Podcasts could form part of a (much lower-tech) set of resources for students studying set texts.

I have recorded a 2-minute off-the-cuff podcast to show the possibilities of the medium.

Listen here.
