Slowmation: A Multimodal Strategy for Engaging Children with Primary Science
Brown, Jeff; Murcia, Karen; Hackling, Mark
Teaching Science, v59 n4 p14-20 Dec 2013
Multimedia technologies such as Slowmation can be used to enhance curriculum resources and support innovative teaching methods. This case study research of a rural multi-aged class of primary science students included analyses of classroom captured video and interview data from a term long module on Astronomy. The study explored how students' engagement in the construction of a Slowmation impacted on their use of science discourse and multi-modal representations of key concepts. Intentionally crafted learning and teaching with Slowmation promoted the development of students' scientific literacy and engendered a joy of science learning.
