Dynamic Multimedia Instruction: An Affordable Solution for Mixed-Media Integration on a Single Classroom Television.
Morris, Ronald L.
A unique teaching strategy is presented, which empowers the instructor with affordable technology to become more effective in the traditional teaching-learning process, and involves a sensory montage of multimedia elements superimposed on a single classroom television monitor. Such computer resources as graphics, animation, QuickTime movies, sound, Hypertext and speech are integrated with external resources like a videodisc player, video microscope, still video camera, photo CD, VCR, camcorder, and CD-ROM audio or graphics to produce a multisensory learning experience. The following subjects are addressed in the strategy: technology requirements; philosophical statement; instructional technology challenge, solution and recommendations; possible software solutions; Hypercard, Supercard, and Digital Chisel; and wiring for video overlay, video switching, and audio mixing. An epilogue reminds educators that multimedia in the hands of a teacher has the power to transform data into meaningful knowledge in the lives of students. Four figures and one table illustrate the strategy. (Author/MAS)
