DEFINITION: “Phonecasting is a portmanteau of telephone and podcasting, and simply means recording and listening to podcasts with a phone.”
This is the slidecast (synchronized audio and presentation slides) for my final dissertation defense in Curriculum and Instruction at Texas Tech University today. The title of my dissertation was, “Impact Analysis of Phonecasted Lecture Summaries.” My research question was, “Does the use of student summary lecture phonecasting relate to student academic achievement, controlling for the effects of prior academic differences?” I DID pass the dissertation defense today, so I’m officially “Dr. Fryer!” I am still making some additions to my final dissertation, so its publication will be delayed pending completion of those changes.
Many, many thanks for everyone’s kind words of support and celebration today!
