  • Interesting and relevant
  • Unusual
  • Uncertainty

ccSteve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 http://englishinguiabasico.wordpress.com/2009/01/ 33. When we listen...

  • ... we interpret and judge
  • ... we sometimes change our moods
  • ... we dont always hear everything
  • ... we hear more than is actually said

Parson, V. et al (2009) Educating an iPod Generation.Learning, Media and Technology,34 (3), 215-228. Podcasts vs. Vodcasts ccSteve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 41. What they said:

  • Podcasting is all about planning and content and very little about technology and equipment, though we focus on the latter.- James Clay, Gloucestershire College
  • Educators need a lot of technical support in producing video content. [It is very] time/resource intensive.- Ruth Sexstone, University of Arts, London

ccSteve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 42. What they said:

  • While most students love the flexibility, some feel they're being 'short changed' if teachers aren't performing 'live'.- Cath Ellis, University of Huddersfield
  • I think most teachers just classify it as recording audio without really using the full sharing function of podcasting.- Ann-Maree Moore, Macquarie University

ccSteve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 43. Issues to address

  • Some staff are nervous about their content being out there in the real world.
  • Cath Ellis, University of Huddersfield
  • Is Podcasting a Web 2.0 tool?
  • Do students really listen?
  • Do students actually learn?
