Multimedia Projects in the Classroom: A Guide to Development and Evaluation.
Green, Timothy D.; Brown, Abbie
This guide is designed to help teachers understand how the multimedia development process works, and how to incorporate student-produced multimedia projects into their classrooms. The book consists of five chapters. Chapter 1 defines multimedia and addresses the importance of integrating digital media into the classroom. Chapter 2 discusses traditional classroom multimedia activities, recommended approaches to integrating curriculum content into multimedia projects, and where to find resources that address the issue of technology-curriculum integration. Chapter 3 focuses on how to use cooperative learning strategies to manage a classroom-based multimedia project, where to find multimedia production references suitable for students, and options for presenting and sharing students' multimedia projects. Chapter 4 describes how to evaluate student-created multimedia projects, how to give both group and individual grades for projects done in teams, and how to create a grading rubric for a multimedia project. Chapter 5 discusses the phases involved in creating multimedia projects, tasks that multimedia professionals do as they go through these phases, and how students go through the phases to create multimedia projects. Each chapter includes references and recommended readings. An appendix presents a timeline of the history of multimedia. (Includes a glossary and an index.) (AEF)
