Self-Efficacy, Self-Regulation, and Cognitive Style as predictors of achievement with podcast instruction – An examination of multiple potential factors that could affect instruction through podcasting. Self-efficacy, self-regulation and cognitive style are researched and tested for potential effects with the aid of seventeen students. These students screened for four persistent variables (academic self-efficacy, academic self-regulation, cognitive style and self-efficacy for online technologies) to which was measured and examined during the analysis that took place.
After the collective examinations, it was found that only cognitive style showed any true impact on podcasting with the current research. However, as the journal notes they worked with a limited pool of volunteers and weren’t quite able to get the results the researchers needed to provide truly definite results. The paper offers multiple ideas for potential future research topics, including offering the concept that different types of podcasts could offer insight and provide better results looking into the variables. They also encourage more research into cognitive style’s impact on podcasting.
