Paper - Refereed

New technologies are constantly emerging and educators are being challenged to accommodate and implement such technologies into their collection of teaching methodologies. The interactive whiteboard (IAW) is one such technology that is appearing in many school classrooms across the country. To date there has been limited investigation into the role that pre-service teachers should play in modelling its effective use while on practicum placement.
This study explored the effects of podcast construction and usage on student achievement and satisfaction. Sixty-seven undergraduate education students were divided into three matched groups to complete their study of Computer Aided Drawing. As part of their coursework, each of the three groups had varying involvement with podcasting. The first group was required to create a podcast, the second group used a range of podcasts, and the third group had no involvement with podcasting in the subject.

This paper represents an attempt at constructing a language for describing the potential learning value of computers as a learning material. A lack of precision in describing the value computers add to the learning process has paradoxically made it easy for people to elevate the significance of using computers in pedestrian ways while simultaneously marginalising higher-order uses. Currently, all manner of computer-based activities are granted equivalence by educators lacking a suitable metric for assessing value.
