WEEK 9 – A Multimedia Enhanced Lesson

Here is the link to the 8 day course that I created as an introductory course for students interested in my programs.

Why multimedia in this lesson represents a pedagogically sound approach:

In the combination of face-to-face and online learning that I am experimenting with, the online component is mostly about hearing stories, being inspired and gathering information. The real learning happens outside.

Therefore, the medium that I like to work with- video, works for several reasons; kids love listening to stories, watching video and interacting with the cyber world. Creating an online element that is inspiring and interactive is the best way, I feel, to motivate kids to participate in the learning. Some of the video I have produced myself, and others by educators from affiliated schools. It is also the tool I hope to inspire my students with to tell their own multimedia stories at the end of the 8 day program.
