Podcasting in middle school Spanish classes: A non-traditional approach to student achievement

Deborah C Hodge, Pace University

Abstract

This study was conducted to determine whether podcasting, in conjunction with mobile MP3 technology used outside the classroom, affects student achievement. Additionally, data were collected and analyzed with regard to gender, selected family demographics, and learning styles. A pretest and posttest was administered to students. The results of the tests demonstrated the relevancy of the variables and their statistical significance, with respect to students’ test scores, when podcasting was included as an instructional tool. The study was conducted in middle school Beginning Spanish Level II classes.^
