Abstract

There are different ways of innovating in education. Some of them need the use of new technologies while others are more focus on more traditional tools. Podcasting can be categorized within the first group. The word «podcast» is the result of the combination of the Apple device Ipod and the general concept of broadcasting. The use of podcast in education has been focused mainly as a way of substituting lectures (O’Bannon, Lubke, Beard, & Britt, 2011). In this study, we use podcasting within two different groups: 31 students from the first year of the degree on Pedagogy and 39 students from the first year of the degree on Tourism at the Universidad de La Laguna. Students were taught the basic notions of podcasting and confronted with practical examples before making their own podcast in groups of four or five people. In the case of the students of Pedagogy, the topic was chosen by the professor while more freedom was given to the students of the tourism degree. A survey focusing on four aspects: the assessment of the experience in general, the perceived effects among peers, the perceived effects on the learning process and the willingness to enlarge the experience, was sent to the students to evaluate the experience. The results show a general satisfaction with the experience and some differences among the defined groups.
