PoducateMe | Practical Solutions for Podcasting in Education

Für diejenigen, denen es noch nicht über denWeg gelaufenist: PoducateMe hat neben einem sehr ausführlichen Beginners-Guide auch ein wenig theoretische Begründungsansätze für das Podcasting im Kontext von Lehre. Ich weiss nur noch nicht genau, wie weit man über das „An der Technologie kommt man einfach nicht mehr vorbei“ hinausgeht. Irgendwie schade, wenn solche Argumente zu plakativ plaziert sind. Dabei gibt es doch sicherlich andere ….. ….

Learn how to bring the benefits of podcasting to your classroom
You’ve likely heard of podcasting by now. Countless universities, colleges and K-12 classes worldwide are using the technology to deliver recorded lectures, news and information to students. In fact, nothing has had a greater impact on students since the invention of the paddle. OK, I kid, but I’m also making a point here—podcasting has taken education by storm, and the technology cannot be ignored.

Why podcast?
The results of internal evaluations of pilot podcasting programs by universities including Duke* and the University of Washington* (UW) have encouraged these institutions to expand their podcasting programs. Duke faculty reported greater student engagement and interest in class discussions, field research and independent projects incorporating the use of iPods. UW faculty noted that students are less likely to drop podcasted courses because the recordings help them to keep up with the material. Additional observed benefits include increased class enthusiasm (especially when the students are involved in the project) and stronger student evaluations of courses.

Doch was sich als Quellenangabe entpuppt scheint nicht minder spannend:
