Sustainable development goals


This article presents podcasts and podcasting for the distribution of contents of any kind that can be listened to or watched on a computing equipment or, better, on a mobile device, such as a tablet or a smartphone1. The application of podcasts to the learning process of second languages, and particularly, the adequacy of its use for the development of oral skills is analyzed, including both receptive skills (comprehension) and productive skills (speaking) and, within the latter, aspects such as pronunciation, intonation, and fluency. Here, a fundamental distinction is made according to the type of podcasts, and the affordances and achievements that have been found until now in research projects and didactic experiences. Finally, a reflection is made about the need to integrate podcasts with other innovative methodological and technological proposals that are emerging in parallel, in order to provide a solution to the several educational challenges regarding second languages in the 21st Century
