Text and pictures work well to convey a lot of what you want to capture in your blog however, adding audio makes content more dynamic. Using a variety of post styles helps keep readers interested. Sound can add some life into a sea of text.

As a teaching tool using audio can integrate elements of the curriculum that otherwise are hard to convey. Music or a speech for instance are powerful when heard. Connecting pieces of your lesson together via multi-media also shows examples to students. They too can be creators of this content.

Audio can be used to post story telling, document sounds of a science experiment or capture sounds of a habitat. Exploring elements of sound crosses curriculum areas too.

Consider adding podcasts or playlists as well.
