  3. 3. iTunes University and the classroom: Can podcasts replace professors? <ul><li>iTunes University is a website where you can download educational podcasts. </li></ul><ul><li>Professors can upload lectures for students that can’t come to class. </li></ul><ul><li>Professors can also publish powerpoint slides online for the students. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts can not replace professors, because you need the professor to post the podcast. </li></ul>
  4. 4. iTunes University and the classroom: Can podcasts replace professors? <ul><li>A study was conducted to find out how the podcasts helped. </li></ul><ul><li>Students who went to lecture and didn’t use the podcasts spent more hours to study for the test. </li></ul><ul><li>Students who went to lecture and used the podcasts and powerpoint spent less time studying and scored higher on the test. </li></ul><ul><li>2009). iTunes University and the classroom: Can podcasts replace Professors?.

  5. 5. Article 1: Reflection <ul><li>I think podcasts can help certain students in classes. I downloaded a lecture podcast for my Biology class at Purdue. I fell asleep within 15 minutes of pressing play. If you can stay awake listening to a lecture, then podcasts will probably be a great study tool for you. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Podcasting: Implementation and Evaluation in an Undergraduate Nursing Program <ul><li>Technology is being used more in education than ever before. </li></ul><ul><li>Nursing program is not exception. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasting is available to anyone who has a computer or mp3 player. </li></ul><ul><li>Video podcasting is also available but is labor intensive. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Podcasting: Implementation and Evaluation in an Undergraduate Nursing Program <ul><li>Podcasting does not have a significant affect on attendance. </li></ul><ul><li>Students use podcasting to get a head start on material. </li></ul><ul><li>Listening skills improved by twenty percent. </li></ul><ul><li>Seniors in the nursing program used podcasts more than freshman and sophomore students. </li></ul><ul><li>Forbes, M., & Hickey, M. (2008). Podcasting: Implementation and Evaluation in an Undergraduate Nursing Program. Nurse Educator , 33 (5), 224-7. Retrieved April 23, 2009, from Education Full Text database. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Article 2: Reflection <ul><li>I thought it was interesting that the seniors in the nursing program used the podcasts more than the younger students. I think there is a correlation between the use of podcasts and difficulty of classes. I think it was also important noticing that podcasts helped students develop listening skills. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Educational Uses of Podcasting <ul><li>MP3’s are not just for music and entertainment, but they are also used for education. </li></ul><ul><li>The education sector of podcasting has been used to improve the quality of teaching, enable effective teaching, and improve the overall learning experience. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Educational Uses of Podcasting <ul><li>Podcasting enables the professor and the students to interact with each other. </li></ul><ul><li>It also lets students use the podcasts for their individual needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasting lets the student be flexible and is very affordable. There are no costs for downloading. </li></ul><ul><li>Harris, H., & Park, S. (2008). Educational usages of podcasting. British Journal of Educational Technology , 39 (3), 548-51. Retrieved April 23, 2009, from Education Full Text database. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Article 3: Reflection <ul><li>I think this article summarized the benefits of podcasting very well. Podcasting enables a student to be very flexible. The student can listen to lectures on any day at any time. They can hit pause, stop, or play anytime. I think if lecturers listen to their podcasts, they can figure out what in their lectures is working. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Conclusion <ul><li>I believe that podcasting can help both teachers and students. Teachers can figure out why their lectures are boring or what they forgot to cover. Students can listen to past or future lectures anytime and anywhere. If a student can come to class, then they can listen to the podcast and not fall behind. I am certain that podcasting will be used throughout high schools by the time I have kids and they are taking classes. </li></ul>
