Pedagogical Design Considerations in Sex Education on Interactive Multimedia Using CD-Rom: An Example of Sexual Intercourse
Goldman, Juliette D. G.; Torrisi-Steele, Geraldine
Sex Education: Sexuality, Society and Learning, v5 n2 p189-214 May 2005
Human sexuality is a significant issue for educators to understand and teach about, and for young people to learn about. The development of interactive multimedia technologies has added a range of new dimensions associated with designing pedagogies for sex education on Interactive Multimedia (IMM). Here, a module on CD-Rom on Sexuality and Human Relationships designed for student teachers is presented as an example of a resource, and analysed for the pedagogical considerations that accompany it. The paper concludes that the conceptualisation and design of IMM on CD-Rom on sexuality is able to address a range of commonly used pedagogies. The most significant pedagogical renegotiation appears to lie in the transposing of human-to-human interaction, as in discussion, real life scenarios, simulation, role analysis, values and attitude clarification, to human-to-screen interaction. This may be addressed principally by using camera phones where human-to-human interaction occurs visually and in real time, whilst email and discussion groups can cater for delayed, typed text human-to-human interactions. For some learners, using IMM on CD-Rom for sex education may be less effective, but for others it may be ideal as it provides for privacy, solo contemplation, self-dialogue, and negates embarrassment in front of peers or teachers.
