Media and Multitasking : A study of educational podcast and training (English)
Abstract [sv]

I och med ny medieteknik samt en allt mer uppkopplad och stressad värld har det blivit vanligare med multitasking. Tidigare forskning visar att 90 procent av befolkningen multitaskar någon gång varje dag. Detta trots att multitasking visats leda till både stress och försämrad prestationsförmåga i de aktiviteter man arbetar med, särskilt i samband med inlärning. Samtidigt har tidigare forskning visat att träning förbättrar flera funktioner i hjärnan kopplat till inlärning. I denna studie undersöktes om multitasking, träning samtidigt som inlärning, kan utnyttjas för att förbättra inlärningen. 14 studenter deltog i en experimentell studie där två lika stora grupper fick lyssna på en podcast antingen springandes eller sittandes och sedan besvara ett test bestående av 13 frågor om podcastens ämne.

Resultatet visar att skillnaden i inlärning från podcast mellan deltagare som suttit eller sprungit medan de lyssnat på podcasten är liten. Studiens resultat indikerar på en viss fördel för gruppen som satt still under testet då de i medeltal fick tio rätt på testet om podcastens ämne medan motsvarande siffra var nio för deltagarna som sprang. Men med tanke på antalet deltagare i studien är skillnaden inte tillräckligt stor för att dra slutsatsen att inlärning under träning påverkas negativt.

Abstract [en]

Since the evolution of new media technology together with a continuously more connected and stressed world, multitasking has become more common. Previous research shows that 90 percent of the population multitask at least once a day. However, it also shows that multitasking leads to stress and impaired performance in the activities you work with, especially learning activities. With reason in research, that shows that training enhances several functionalities in the brain connected with learning, an experiment study with 14 participants was conducted to examine how learning is affected during running.

The participants in this study were students at the degree program in media technology at the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. The study used an experimental method with a control group and an experiment group; the control group sitting while listening to the podcast and the experiment group running while listening. The study shows that the difference in learning, from podcast, between the participants in the control group and the participators in the experiment group was modest. The results also indicate a small advantage for the control group, but it was not large enough to draw the conclusion that running affected the learning negatively. We instead assesses it as likely that the result is a consequence of a combination of multitasking affecting learning negatively, while training affecting it positively.
