Peter makes learning about heritage exciting through the use of modern technology, guiding the children in the creation of heritage-themed podcasts and video-casts. Peter holds a workshop with the class in advance of making the video to agree and research the content, which can relate to our environmental, social or cultural heritage.
When completed, the video can be shared with other Classesin the school and displayed on the schools website. Peter also demonstrates to the teacher how this method can continue to be used in the classroom to enhance the childrens learning experience. All equipment is supplied by Peter.

In this tutorial Peter demonstrates how to make a podcast:


  • "Peter was excellent. The children loved the day. He has a great manner with them and he had their attention all day. Big thumbs up from me and my class!"
  • "Peter has an excellent way with the children. Very entertaining and engaging. The workshop was informative and we as a class feel it is something we could work towards facilitating in the senior classes school wide."
