Research project ”Does the students’ interest in learning increase when you introduce youth culture into the school?" Youth culture is here represented by podcasting and ipods. The research design will look at affordances and constraints concerning podcasting in mathematics education.
Eleven schools are involved in the project. Two teachers from each school are provided with equipment enabling them to produce short videos with a content that they regard as relevant for their teaching. The videos are distributed to the students (school year 8) in the form of podcasts. The project tries to find answers on questions concerning students’ interest in the subject, and also affordances and constraints with the teaching method. Questions also deal with attitudes to and beliefs of mathematics teaching and learning.
