Active Learning & Technology: Using streaming media and multimedia in the classroom: Multimedia project examples

Why Multimedia?

  • requires students to express their ideas concisely.

  • appeals to visual learners.

  • allows students to share their work with their classmates.

  • increases quality of work.  Students are more likely to spend time on a project, if they know that their classmates will see it or that it will be available online.

  • allows students to combine academic skills with creative ones.
