Abstract

Video podcasts allow students to control when, where, and what they learn, as well as the pace of learning. Considerable research has been conducted in higher education on video podcasts use, but not in middle schools (grades six to eight). This study investigated the use of worked example video podcasts in mathematics classrooms with students 11 to 13 years old. One hundred thirty-six pupils individually watched video podcasts designed to teach basic mathematics concepts. Students were positive about the quality of worked example video podcasts and appreciated the step-by-step, easy to follow explanations, diagrams, and being able to control the pace of learning. Learning performance increased significantly after using worked example video podcasts. There were no gender or grade level differences in attitudes toward worked example video podcasts or learning performance. Les podcasts vido permettent aux tudiants de contrler quand, o, et ce qu'ils apprennent, ainsi que le rythme d'apprentissage. Un grand nombre de recherches ont t menes sur l'utilisation de podcasts vido dans l'enseignement suprieur, mais pas dans les coles secondaires de premier cycle (classes de sixime huitime). Cette tude a examin l'utilisation des podcasts vido d\u2019exercices pratiques dans des classes de mathmatiques avec des lves de 11 13 ans. Cent trente-six lves ont regard individuellement des podcasts vido conus pour enseigner des concepts mathmatiques de base. L\u2019valuation des lves a t positives quant la qualit de podcasts vido et ils ont apprci les explications par tapes et faciles suivre, les schmas ainsi que la possibilit de contrler le rythme de l'apprentissage. La performance d'apprentissage s\u2019est amliore de manire significative aprs l'utilisation des podcasts vido. Il n'y avait de pas de diffrence selon le sexe ou le niveau scolaire dans les attitudes envers les podcasts vido ou dans la performance d'apprentissage.
