Abstract

Abstract The issue of ensuring that learners attain and retain motivation in respect of classroom-based work in Physical Education (PE) has seldom been a focus of investigation. This study looks specifically at the use of ICT to promote motivation and learning in A Level PE. The research investigation explored whether the use of podcasts as an A Level Physical Education (PE) revision tool could improve motivation and examination performance. The pupils within an A Level PE class took a pre-test mock examination paper, after which the pupils were separated into either the control or intervention group. Over a six-week period the control group used traditional methods of revision along with revision lessons. The intervention group used traditional methods along with the additional use of podcasts to aid their revision. The podcasts covered revision material that was combined with popular songs and animations. After the six-week revision period pupils took another mock examination paper. The results found that whilst most pupils improved in their examination performance, the intervention group had greater gains in examination performance overall. The results concluded that the use of podcasts could improve examination performance over and above using traditional revision methods alone. This investigation supports the notion that the use of podcasts within education can improve student attainment when used in conjunction with traditional revision methods.
