Journal on School Educational Technology, v6 n2 p42-46 Sep-Nov 2010
Instructional technology is a growing field which uses technology as a means to solve teaching and learning challenges, both in the classroom and outside the classroom that is in distance learning environments. Multimedia is an interactive instructional technology used in the classroom for teaching learning process has a wide significance to the learners as well as teachers. Multimedia means the integration of continuous media (e.g. audio, video) and discrete media (e.g. text, graphics, images) through which the digital information can be conveyed to the user in an appropriate way. In the present study, the investigators have developed and standardized the Multimedia Package in non-linear way using Macromedia Flash MX software for learning Volcanoes in Social Sciences for upper primary students. The ADDIE model was considered to develop and standardize the Multimedia package. In this study, the experimental method was adopted by the investigators. The Parallel Group Design was chosen in this study in which the Control and Experimental groups were the two groups of parallel group design. Fifty students studying VIII standard from Government Higher Secondary School at Vellalore Panchayat in Coimbatore were randomly selected as sample for the study. The fifty students were divided into two groups (i.e.) Control group and Experimental group. Each group comprised of 25 students. The pre-test and post-test were conducted for both groups. Finally the study proves that the learning outcome through multimedia package is higher than the traditional method. Hence, it concludes that the multimedia package developed and standardized for learning volcanoes in social sciences is an effective tool and the same can be implemented to enhance the learning activities of the students.
