Educational multimedia and hypermedia systems, which integrate computer-generated text and graphics with full-motion video and stereo sound, dominate much discussion about the future of computer use in education. This guide brings together the thoughts, ideas, and experience of elementary school students, classroom teachers, administrators, university-based teacher educators, and educational researchers who have several years of experience with multimedia/hypermedia hardware and software. The guide's eight articles attempt to provide a composite profile of what can be expected from the technology and what the technology requires from those who want to use it, particularly with special needs students. The guide addresses instructional design of multimedia/hypermedia materials, classroom management, teacher and student training, equipment acquisition, student perceptions, teacher perceptions, and administrative perspectives. Articles include: "Teacher Training in Multimedia: Content Enhancements and Considerations for Instruction" (Cheryl Wissick); "Envisioning, Acquiring, and Running a Multimedia Lab in Your Classroom" (Karen Perlbachs); "Building a Hypermedia Classroom Unit" (Susan McGrath); "Using a Hypermedia Encyclopedia with Third Graders" (Marilyn Heyn); "Enhancing Critical and Creative Thinking with a Multimedia Authoring Tool" (Louise Wilson); "A Principal's View of Hypermedia" (Vera Risdon); "The Multimedia Classroom" (Elaine Montoya Prickett); and "Hypermedia Enhanced Basal Readers: 'A Book Can't Do That...'" (Randall Boone and Kyle Higgins). A resources section lists definitions of terms; books, directories, and newsletters; publishers of multimedia software, videodiscs, and other educational technology; and 33 references. (JDD)
