Multimedia Instructional Programs in Mathematics--Demonstration and Experimentation. The Assimilation of New Media in the Instructional Program of a Rural School. Final Report.
Miller, Donald M.; And Others
The assimilation into an existing instructional program of both the new knowledge on learning processes and recent technological advances was attempted in this project through the integration of programed mathematics at the ninth grade level with the multimedia approach to instruction. Controlled experimentation led to several conclusions. New media can be effectively utilized within existing classroom conditions. Teachers should assist in developing and implementing new instructional programs to insure continued use of the programed units, as well as flexibility in administering the materials. If the programs are tailored to fit the ability levels of students, learning is effectively improved. The development of a multimedia program should adhere to a systematic plan which can be trial-tested with selected students, and the program should be modified accordingly. In addition to presenting the details of the development and testing of the multimedia materials, the report consolidates into an example and a checklist of procedures the experience gained during the project in the production of such materials. Twelve of the project's 24 programs are also included. (GO/MT)
