The article discusses a study on the effect of replacing classroom chalk and talk on educational outcomes of student exam results and teacher effectiveness perception. The study tested the hypothesis that innovative educational tools such as podcasts are more effective in student learning than traditional chalk and talk. It recorded student exam scores from 2008-2011. It concluded that chalk and talk created an environment where students were passive recipients of information.
