  • 1. Educational Podcastinga learner-centred, collaborative opportunity
    Andrew Middleton

  • 2. My context
    Academic innovation with digital audio
    Educational developer

    Infrastructure (human and technical systems) for digital media

  • 3. Drop the e?
    Response to John Connell, Yes
    Because 2.0 is about a creative process of transforming learning, not creating an adjunct to it.
    Actively involving people in redefining learning is an opportunity for a social construction of what 21st century learning can be.
  • 4. It’s difficult though...
    When faced with a totally new situation, we tend to always attach ourselves to the objects, to the flavor of the most recent past. We look at the present through the rear-view mirror. We march backwards into the future.
    McLuhan and Fiore, 1967
  • 5. My challenge therefore
    What can we usefully do now that we couldn’t do before?
    Working together, creatively inventing theblended, extended learning environment
    Imagining what’s round the next corner(cover the rear-view mirror!)
  • 6. Starting point
    Effective technology-enhanced applications are usually active, constructive, intentional, authentic and collaborative (Jonassenet al. 2003)
    Learner-centred, autonomousi.e. Meaningful
    ...and fun!
    How can a medium historically associated with information transmission transform pedagogy to facilitate engaging ‘noisy thinking’ for the C21st curriculum?
  • 7. Audio (and a-learning) in the 2.0 ethos
    *O'Reilly, T. (2005). What Is Web 2.0? - design patterns and business models for the next generation of software.Available online at: http://facweb.cti.depaul.edu/jnowotarski/se425/What%20Is%20Web%202%20point%200.pdflast accessed 26/03/07

  • 9. Therefore audio appears to fit well with the notion of
    active, constructive, intentional, authentic and collaborative
    andautonomous, learner-centredpedagogy

    Yes, of course!

    Record
    highly accessible technology
  • 12. The Mic is Mightier than the Pen
    Journalism module (e.g.)Large cohort - 230
    Tutor team conversational summary (could involve learners just as easily);
    Student seminar discussion captured and shared from pollination across seminar groups;
    Expert voices – the real world comes in;
    Audio and screencast feedback: timely and meaningful;
    Assignment briefs and cognitive challenges;
    etc
  • 13. Audio Active

    Group summary of a-learning – briefly discuss, then record a 2 min summary for people not here
    Interview the experts – find someone who has presented
    (Roving reporter)
  • 14. Discussion: active, authentic, audio
    Roving reporterQs for me or my Qs for you:
    Do lectures fit into the active, authentic, audio a-learning 2.0 ethos?
    What voices would you bring into your learning environment and why?
    Design principles for user-generated audio content?
    What needs to be in place (strategic, human and technical infrastructure)?
