"Clubcasting": Educational Uses of Podcasting in Multicultural Settings
Beilke, Jayne R.; Stuve, Matthew J.; Williams-Hawkins, Maria A.
Multicultural Education & Technology Journal, v2 n2 p107-117 2008
Purpose: This article aims to provide a case study example of the uses of podcasting in a multicultural educational setting. Design/methodology/approach: Pre-service undergraduate teaching majors collaborated with graduate students enrolled in an educational technology course and clients of a community agency service minority, low-income youth to produce a "radio" show podcast. Findings" The project demonstrated the potential and limitations of using a podcast to improve the literacy skills of inner city youth and technical proficiency of pre-service teaching majors. Research limitations/implications: The study was limited to its one-semester implementation phase. Practical implications: This is an example of the use of technology among low-income minority youth and its ability to close the digital divide as well as the social divide between inner city youth of color and white pre-service teachers and technology majors. Originality/value: Because of the digital divide, podcasting has not been introduced into under-resourced environments such as inner-city community agencies. Additionally, pre-service teaching majors are not generally taught the pedagogical uses of MP3 players. (Contains 2 figures.)
