Podcasting in school
2009 (English)In: Sixth Research Seminar of the Swedish Society for Research in Mathematics Education (MADIF 6), In press, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
Podcasting is a new phenomenon in Swedish schools. This paper describes a project where the main goal is to analyze if the students’ interest in mathematics is affected if the mathematics is made accessible via podcasts and ipods. Teachers at eleven schools were encouraged to produce podcasts as a part of their mathematics teaching in school-year eight. The results indicate an increased interest in mathematics and the learning of mathematics among the students. We also found that the technical difficulties for the teachers were underestimated in the project, and that teachers had difficulties in finding time for the production of podcasts.
