Another perspective on Multimedia
When considering the usage and implementation of multimedia, understand that our 21st century need more. They need to learn how to analyze, evaluate and create!
Provide authentic learning via problem solving, simulation, experimentation, and role playing activities for those higher order thinking skills to take place.
Elements to consider when integrating multimedia
-Authentic learning takes place when a learner needs to investigate a complex topic or concept and takes a significant amount of time to produce a product or conclusion. For example, Why the Civil War occurred in America.
-Authentic learning takes place when the learner is able to sort through information and analyze if it is relevant and valid for their learning. For example, understand the differences between primary and secondary sources.
