Multimedia Scenario in a Primary School
Nulden, Urban; Ward, Bodil
Information Technology in Childhood Education Annual, v2002 n1 p61-85 2002
Multimedia as an educational technology tool is used throughout the educational system. In this article we present a research project where multimedia scenario was used to initiate a discussion about Internet use among students and teachers at a primary school. Multimedia scenario is the use of large screen multimedia to initiate and facilitate discussion in a group of learners. Multimedia scenario is part of a teaching methodology called PIER (Problem based learning, Interactive multimedia, Experiential learning, and Role playing). We describe how two groups of students and teachers--facilitated by a multimedia scenario--discussed Internet ethics and information filtering in a school context. The groups were observed during the use, and the article concludes that multimedia scenario and the PIER methodology has potential as learning activity in the primary school context.
