    • Blending Technologies into Teaching Literary Studies
      Lawrence Burke, EdD
    • Technology in Teaching & Learning is not new- examples which have changed the way we learn include:
      Printing press
      Electric light
      Radio
      Records (Vinyl)
      Taped recordings
      Television
      VHS tapes
      Cassette recordings
      VCD
      DVD
      But these all had limitations due to cost, availability and reaching a vast audience
      What’s changed today?
      Internet access is becoming increasingly available to a large majority of the world’s population
      Educational institutions are embracing IT and technology to facilitate teaching & Learning
      Experienced teachers are retraining to embrace IT/Technology assisted learning
      Software and hardware is developing at an incredibly fast rate in a competing marketplace for IT products and devices to aid students, parents & educators
      Before & after the Internet & IT revolution

      Web based resources for teaching literary studies
    • What are they?
      essentially podcasts have developed from old technology- see earlier examples
      They’re files (either digital, audio or video) which are produced, uploaded to the web and available for download by users.
      Most audio files are MP3 and video files have names like MP4WMVMOV MPEG FLV
      These files may be downloaded as podcasts
      There are software applications which may be downloaded too-to help you deal with multiple files and types.
      Podcasts
    • They may be used across levels, institutions (primary, secondary & tertiary) and across the curriculum.
      They may be downloaded, or created in the classroom.
      They're a great vehicle for allowing students to create and publish their work online too.
      Students become motivated and pursue excellence in producing their best, most creative and well planned work.
      Why are Podcasts useful in Teaching & Learning situations?
    • They’re a vehicle in which the core traditional essential elements of learning are occurring:
      Creating
      evaluating
      analyzing
      applying
      understanding
      remembering
      The creation of Podcasts ensures a wide range of cognitive skill development as well as encourages and fosters affective and psychomotor development.
      Advantages of Podcasts
    • application of knowledge
      comprehension of what’s been taught
      analysis of work through active processing
      synthesis of work taught
      active participation on behalf of the learner
      they feel valued
      lots of sensory stimulation
      lots of organizing
      These are key psycho-cognitive skill development areas required at all levels of education-from elementary school through to higher education
      For example
    • It’s simple:
      access to the WWW
      Computer
      microphone
      recording software
