Podagogy: The iPod as a Learning Technology
Dale, Crispin; Pymm, John M.
Active Learning in Higher Education, v10 n1 p84-96 2009
With the growing influence of social media on contemporary society, educators have to adapt to new ways of engaging students in the learning process. The use of iPod technologies, as part of this new breed of social media and associated gadgetry, offers fresh opportunities to enhance the student learning experience. As part of a research project entitled Podagogy at the University of Wolverhampton, three projects within the performing arts subjects were undertaken to explore the use of the iPod as a learning technology. This article reports on a number of common themes that have emerged as a process of the research that has been undertaken. These themes offer educators an understanding of how the iPod can be used as a learning technology within their learning and teaching practices. (Contains 3 tables.)
