Abstract

The use of podcasting has grown exponentially. Research projects are racing to keep up with this growth to understand implications for learning and instruction. This project specifically attempts to understand if the use and development of podcasts by students for students influence learning in a 7th grade science classroom. Using a technology integration model, both science and computer teachers will collaboratively teach technical and content knowledge in using podcasting to understand the implications of the ozone layer on the environment. Assessment practices include qualitative practices through interviews and discussions with participants. Quantitative data will include a pre and postsurvey, curriculum content assessments, and podcast quality rubric assessment. Forecasted expectations are that podcasts will increase student motivation, technical skills sets, and content knowledge based on the opportunity for students to create authentic products of their understanding using podcasting in a collaborative learning environment. The implications of the study will demonstrate how podcasts can be successfully used in education for learning and instruction.
