Hypermedia, Multimedia: What's Going On in Today's Classrooms?
Turner, Sandra
Definitions and discussions of the terms hypermedia and multimedia are followed by discussions of three different ways in which schools are using multimedia: multimedia produced by publishers for use in elementary and secondary classes; teacher developed multimedia and hypermedia for use with students; and student created multimedia compositions. Three examples of student hypermedia projects in the Baker Demonstration School at National-Louis University are given: (1) The Hypermedia Zoo--a project using HyperCard with seventh graders to produce multimedia research reports; (2) Quilts, Ocean Animals and Africa--three multimedia projects with third graders using HyperScreen to create a quilt, create an imaginary animal based on research on specific ocean animals, and student initiated use of HyperScreen to make a stack about Africa; and (3) A Multimedia Yearbook--eighth graders using HyperCard to publish a yearbook on disk.
