“Clubcasting”: educational uses of podcasting in multicultural settings

“Clubcasting”: educational uses of podcasting in multicultural settings 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. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Multicultural Education & Technology Journal Emerald Publishing

Abstract

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.
