Graduate Research Papers


Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Walk into any classroom in the country, and you're likely to see students looking up information to produce a written paper which will probably be seen only by the teacher, doing worksheets involving recognition of fraction parts, or answering questions related to the reading in science class, etc. These are all good activities in themselves, but they are also activities that often fall short of developing the student's maximum potential for learning. It has been suggested that the addition of multimedia projects to the classroom can enhance and improve the depth of student learning. This project explores the literature to discover if, in fact, multimedia can be used as a valuable complement to instruction, and how best to encourage the implementation of student- · created multimedia projects into one district's classrooms.
