In this chapter the authors examine three podcasts created by the same class. This particular class generated three different types of podcasts and this allows us to explore the contextual and staging dimensions of language found within these podcasts. The podcasts were created as part of a project investigating the use of podcasting in primary science. The teachers used class time over three-four weeks to allow the pupils to generate podcasts that were then uploaded onto a site for public dissemination. The authors examine the podcasts from various perspectives in order to explore the notion of multiple literacy.
