Tapping into Active Learning and Multiple Intelligences With Interactive Multimedia: A Low-Threshold Classroom Approach
Schrand, Tom
College Teaching, v56 n2 p78-84 Spr 2008
Educational technology is seldom used to facilitate more active student learning in the classroom. Instructors who have mastered PowerPoint, however, could just as easily learn to create simple pieces of interactive multimedia that encourage student participation in learning tasks and that appeal to multiple intelligences and learning styles. Macromedia Flash animation projects can be used to increase student engagement and to activate peer learning. New multimedia authoring software can create opportunities for effective student-centered learning that were not previously possible. (Contains 4 figures.)
