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.

Digital technologies were integrated into a New Zealand year 12 geography classroom to help students construct an understanding of urban processes within their own urban setting and Sao Paulo. This involved the use of an online learning environment, student developed blogs, interactive quizzes and an interactive whiteboard. The aim was to help students to construct their understanding of geographical concepts. This paper explores the responses of the students to the use of the digital technologies to construct knowledge and the impact this had on their learning.
