Podcasting Baladodiffusion Apprentissage Langues - Social Media Education Podcast

Le podcasting ou baladodiffusion est un moyen de diffusion de fichiers audio sur le web, auxquels peuvent s´abonner les internautes, via un flux de syndication (RSS). Les termes audioblog, radioblog ou podcast représentent différentes variantes intégrant des fichiers son, du streaming ou un fil RSS dans un weblog.    Source: Dossier Weblogs - Médias - Podcasting


   L'utilisation de podcasts favorise l’acquisition de compétences fondamentales en langues étrangères, telles que la prononciation et la compréhension orale. Plusieurs études soulignent l'importance de la baladodiffusion pour l’apprentissage d' une langue étrangère: On peut ainsi améliorer la prononciation des élèves avec des activités et exercices de production orale, ainsi qu' intégrer la correction de la prononciation, l'évaluation des enregistrements audio ou l'application de tâches collaboratives ou de projets de télécollaboration entre apprenants  (Abdous,2009; Ducate & Lomicka, 2009; Lord, 2008; Tomé, 2011).

Podcasting can provide access to a large amount of authentic input, as well as to teaching materials of varying quality that have different approaches to language learning behind them (depending on the content provider): from behaviourist to cognitive constructivist and communicative approaches, situated learning, and lifelong learning. The impact of podcasting on learning in general and language learning in particular could be similar to the impact of the arrival of the Internet in terms of giving access to language learning materials (Rosell-Aguilar, 2007)

Podcasts et baladodiffusion en Education – Langues



 A number of researchers have claimed that podcasts can be an effective language-learning tool. Since most students are now coming to class fully equipped with digital devices, podcasting can create a ubiquitous learning opportunity. As long as these students have any sort of MP3 player, they can access classroom
homework or extra teacher-recommended materials while “riding the bus or subway, walking across campus or through a shopping mall”.

First College in the World to use iPods in Education

With all the media scrutiny of Duke University’s "iPod First Year Experience" (Bugeja, 2005), what has escaped media attention is that a women's college outside of the U.S. was the first in the world to provide iPods to incoming first year students. One college newspaper did report that the "first-ever iPod giveaway was at Osaka Jogakuin College in Japan, where officials distributed 15-gigabyte iPods to their 210 incoming freshmen last April. The school put its original English audio-learning aids into their students' iPods to help students learn English more efficiently" (Mochizuki, 2004).

That was on April 3, 2004, nearly a half year before Duke. Now in the second year, iPods are integrated into the curriculum and all the students in the junior college division are studying with them. All the students major in English as a Foreign Language (EFL), and one required course in the four-year as well as two-year college is current events, where students need to acquire the latest news stories by synching their iPods with campus computers in order to do homework assignments.

Japancasting: an example of the educational possibilities

The two stated audiences for Japancasting are those studying Japan or English as a Foreign Language. The episodes broadcast so far go into the fields of Japanese culture and comparative religions, contemporary issues such as the educational system and human rights of minorities in Japan including foreigners. Ancient legends from the pilgrimage of Shikoku, Noh and bunraku plays are analyzed with discussion questions for listeners abroad to discover East Asian values. Seven students have played roles or have presented their own creation in the podcasts so far. There will be interviews with colleagues and other informants in English and Japanese.

There should be some variety for spice, so the podcasts have included a bilingual haiku recital, a learning technology survey response, and a speech on Japanese education captured with a voice recorder and available in both .wma and .mp3 formats at the podcasting blog. Most of the podcasts include links to scripts, with some photos and illustrations, for reading while listening, and links to online sources for further research. Since the scripts are available and the level of difficulty of the language is controlled in some shows, it can also serve as content-based EFL for students in Japan and elsewhere. Furthermore, there will be broadcasts in Japanese or bilingual, so the site will also serve learners of content-based Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL). Thus the site provides lessons for college or high school classes along with informal learning for pleasure and contemplation of intercultural issues.

S. McCarty (2006) Interview with Professor Eiko Kato, First in the World to Apply iPods to Education"
GLOCOM Platform - Special Topics - Colloquium #64: March 7, 2006

Steve McCarty: Today I have with me Professor Eiko Kato of Osaka Jogakuin College. She was the one who was actually first in the world to initiate the use of iPods in education, distributing iPods to all the freshman students starting in 2004, about a half year before Duke University did so, which has often been proclaimed as the first. So let’s ask her about her background and how she came to this idea of using iPods in education before any other educational institution in the world. Could you please introduce yourself a little?

Eiko Kato: Hi, my background is in education, but my research area is in mother-child interaction during child-rearing. Another interest of mine is in how computers and technology can be used in education. When I first saw the iPod I thought it could be a perfect tool for English learning. Because when I was a student a long time ago I listened to English tapes, and I had to listen to English broadcasts at home. But with the iPod you can carry it around, anywhere, any time, and anywhere can be a classroom. You can listen to things you like, and the iPod can be a perfect tool for busy students.

Probablement les premiers apports sur le Podcasting pour l'enseignement des langues:

Diem (2005). Podcasting: A new way to reach students. The Language Teacher, 29 (8), pp. 45-46.

McCarty, S. (2005). Cultural, disciplinary and temporal contexts of e-Learning and English as a Foreign Language. eLearn Magazine: Research Papers, April 2005. Retrieved August 5, 2005,

McCarty, S. (2005). Spoken Internet To Go: Popularization through Podcasting. JALT CALL, 1(2), 67-74.

While podcasting is considered a new technology, McCarty notes that Internet audio files, audio conferencing and video conferencing have been around for quite a while. Audio "represents a great leap in sensory input over text" (p. 67), and recent trends in technology, including easier-to-use recording technology, high-speed Internet connections and newer versions of software available for listening to audio files has helped podcasting to grow in popularity. McCarty sites a number of resources for teachers interested in podcasting, including web-hosting services that can host and help you produce podcasts. In addition, he provides an overview of how Osaka Jogakuin College in Japan, the first college in the word to give away iPods to incoming freshmen in 2004, has been encouraging the use of iPods into the classroom. For example, students majoring in English as a Foreign Language use the iPods to download news stories needed to complete homework assignments.

In addition to providing this overview, McCarty goes into specific detail when discussing a project called Japancasting, a podcast aimed at students in Japan learning English. Japancasting, currently in progress, will contain episodes with topics such as Japanese culture and religions, as well as the educational system and ancient legends. Most episodes will contain links to transcripts, and McCarty states that students, as well as professionals, are contributing scripts and interviews. The aim for Japancasting is not merely to move existing, textual content onto the Internet in a new format, but it instead aims to add another dimension to existing content.



Stanley, G. (2006). Podcasting: Audio on the Internet Comes of Age. TESL-EJ, 9(4).

This article discusses issues related to audio and video podcasting, as well as webcasting, that are of interest to language teachers thinking about integrating these new technologies into their classrooms. Stanley begins with a brief overview of what podcasting is and how podcasts work, and then discusses possibilities for using podcasts in the language classroom, including as a supplement to textbook materials, as a source for authentic listening materials, and as a way for students to gain information on specific aspects of the language, such as idiomatic expressions or grammatical constructions. Stanley recommends many places to search for podcasts, including Podcast Alley, Podcast Pickle, Englishcaster, or the Internet TESL Journal's links.

One other approach to using podcasts in the classroom is to have your students produce their own podcast or podcast episode. Stanley suggests starting “a podcast exchange project with another class and students from other parts of the world” (p. 4). To help teachers gain the knowledge needed to do this type of project, he outlines two ways to create podcasts: an easy way, using an automatic podcast creation tool (such as Odeo or Podomatic , or a more advanced way using Audacity to record your mp3 file, server space to house the file (he cites the free space provided by Ourmedia, where you will need to register with the Internet Archive beforehand as a possibility), and a blog from which to link the file. Once you’ve decided to involve your students in the podcasting process, Stanley suggests that your students may be motivated by the prospect of a real audience, and recommends that teachers listen to any of Bob Sprankle's Room 208 podcast episodes to see how this has been done before. Stanley also discusses his experience of including students in the production of a podcast, and claims “[t]he attention to detail and interest is superior to when learners are producing work which is only being seen by an audience of one (the teacher). Questionnaires given to the students after the course also showed they appreciated the value of the publishing project” (p. 6).

Finally, Stanley discusses video podcasts and webcasts, live, video or audio broadcasts, and suggests using these to encourage interaction between students around the world. Stanley admits that “[l]ive interactive webcasting may be difficult to set up on your own, but a new venture through a site called EFLBridges makes it easier to involve your students in live voice and chat webcasts. Using the free Internet telephony software Skype, students can call in and chat to other students from around the world” (p. 6). While Stanley admits that new uses of these technologies for language learning have yet to be discovered, the possibilities are exciting.


McQuillan, J. (2006) IPod in education: The potential for language acquisition. White Paper. En ligne:

Delivering Comprehensible Language with iPod
The iPod makes it possible to deliver large quantities of comprehensible language to
students in an efficient and convenient manner. One feature especially appealing to
language teachers is the ability to give students contextual support with the help of
the iPod screen, especially at the lower levels of proficiency.

Taking Advantage of the “Acquisition-Friendly” Features of the iPod
Given the parameters set out above for effective language teaching, we can now turn to how specific features of the iPod, iTunes, and iLife software can enhance instruction.

Audio-Only Input
The iPod is, above all else, a portable media player designed to deliver audio and video
content to users. As such, it can be used in instruction to provide students with literally
hundreds of hours of audio-only comprehensible language input on both conversational
and academic topics.

Audio Recording
iPod players come equipped with a high-quality audio recording capacity.With an addon
microphone, they can be used to record audio that can then be used for instruction
or assessment. The possible applications of this function are numerous. For teachers, it is
possible to record additional audio input, classroom presentations, narrated stories, and
other instructional material. Students can record themselves and classmates for a
classroom assignment and provide speech samples to the teacher for assessment.

Students can also use the iPod to interview native speakers for use with another
successful teaching strategy, “narrow listening.” Narrow listening involves listening to
several audio recordings on the same or a similar topic, recorded by different speakers of
the target language.

Podcasting And Vodcasting In Higher Education: How Disruptive Will They Be?

Here are the key highlights of the paper relating to both potential educational applications and possible associated issues and implications:


Recordings of lectures for those students unable to attend the lecture in person.

Audio recordings of textbook text, made available for students by the chapter, would allow students to "read" or review texts while walking or driving to class. It could also be a significant aid to auditory learners.

Students could record and post project audio and video interviews which could be automatically downloaded to an instructors laptop or MP3 player for review.

The same could be done for language lessons where students forward audio of their pronunciation dialogues. They could even swap these with peers for peer review before turning in the final form to the instructor.

Oral reports recorded and archived.

Musical resumes. Music critique.

Libraries of bird sounds that the budding ornithologist could receive via seasonal subscription and take with them to the field.

Downloadable library of high resolution heart sounds for medical students.

Issues and Implications:

How does podcasting or vodcasting challenge the current "talking head" model of classroom lectures ? If all lectures are available via video and audio, do students need to go to class? How often? Why? How can they be kept in class?

Who owns the content, the school, the instructor, the user? Can this content be used outside of the university community? How is it protected or secured to the owner or subscriber?

Who's going to edit the content? What are the guidelines for editing? What's real - what's not?

How is copyrighted material tracked and/or verified?

Can money be made from this?

"Narrow Listening" - Effective Method of Listening Comprehension Improvoment
Commentaire de Aisha le 7 décembre 2010 à 20:28

   While few examples of the integration of podcasting into foreign language instruction are currently documented, the iPod first-year experience at Duke University provides interesting case studies. Duke University students in Lisa Merschelʼs elementary Spanish courses, for example, have used the universityʼs iTunes site to download listening materials and audio flash cards for improving pronunciation (e.g., a dramatic reading of Don Juan Tenorio by Duke Spanish instructors, oral comprehension exercises for use in class, and songs). These students have also created a diachronic and potentially developmental oral production portfolio by uploading weekly recordings of their own speech (see In Peter McIsaacʼs course, “Berlin in the 20th Century,” students downloaded historical recordings of music from Berlin, famous speeches delivered in Berlin, and uploaded interviews they recorded with their iPods of Americans sharing their impressions of pivotal events in the history of Berlin (see The Duke experiment hints at the potential for podcasting to foster a more seamless integration of in-class and out-of-class activity and materials, in addition to the wealth of authentic foreign language material freely available for download. (pp. 385-386)     in Thorne, S. L., Payne, J.S. (2005). Evolutionary Trajectories, Internet-mediated Expression, and Language Education. CALICO Journal, 22 (3), p-p 371-397.

 -----     ------

  While a number of projects have used iPods in language education, few have as yet reported their fi ndings in substantive studies. In his recent discussion of podcasting, McCarty (2005) seeks to overturn the claim to ascendancy given to Duke University in the USA in being widely credited as the fi rst to give freshmen iPods for pedagogical purposes. Noting that Duke distributed the 20GB iPods to freshmen in Fall 2004 (Read, 2005), he points out that his own institution, Osaka Jogakuin College, had already distributed 15GB iPods to two hundred and ten incoming freshmen six months previously. In fact, Internet research suggests that Georgia College and State University in the USA (GCSU) in partnership with Apple Education was the fi rst to distribute iPods in 2002 (Sellers, 2002), with the explicit intention that pedagogical initiatives be developed to integrate them into existing courses. In this case 50 iPods were given out. Since then a number of its courses have sought to incorporate the devices into the curriculum, as well as develop their potential to play audio books, and permit students to listen to lectures, collect survey data, and promote their use by the universityʼs exchange students around the world. Though all three projects use iPods, they require students to capture digital audio content from their universityʼs servers, rather like downloading audio from the Internet. There is a difference, however, between downloading digital audio content and podcasting. The latter refers to a push-technology in which users subscribe to a site, and then automatically receive the  latest content when they open their chosen podcasting software, such as iTunes or iPodder (Meng, 2005).

One of the large-scale projects ever undertaken regarding the application of iPods to language learing is the 2004 Duke University iPod experiment (the Duke iPod First-Year Experience) in the United States. Prior to this, two small-scale case studies had been carried out in 2002 and 2004 at George College and State University and Osaka jogakuin College, respectively (Thomas, 2006; Thorne & Payne, 2005).    in Chaka, C.  (2009) Portable handheld language Learning: From CALL, MALL to PALL.  in Cássia Veiga Marriott, R. &  Lupion Torres, P.
