Notes from the field…

February 16, 2010

Lori Aden and I spent a great day in Splendora yesterday working with elective teachers on using Multimedia in the Classroom. The excitement we share with them when visiting some of the most engaging sites on the web was palpable. It made me think about how if we can get technology immigrants so excited about multimedia, what must we do to get our students excited about learning? Multimedia must be integrated into this plan. Mayer’s research is great beginning. Understanding that our students process information on two channels is important and we must reach beyond our grasp to do this at every appropriate opportunity. If you are interested in learning more about multimedia, register for our online TWT Class: Multimedia in the Classroom.
