Designing Multimedia Case Studies for Prospective Mathematics Teachers
Bowers, Janet; Doerr, Helen
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v12 n2 p135-161 Apr 2003
This article describes issues related to the design and research of a multimedia case study for prospective mathematics teachers. In the design section, we discuss three questions to consider when creating a multimedia case, and explore how various other researchers have answered them. In the results section, we describe a survey-based study we conducted that focused on the use of one multimedia case that was used in seven different mathematics methods classrooms across the US. Two overall findings were (a) the most useful and most highly rated feature of the CD was the teacher reflections, and (b) overall, the multimedia case received the highest ratings from students enrolled in courses where the case exploration activities were integrally woven into the course goals. (Contains 2 notes and 8 figures.)
