LESSON 16: USING THE PROJECT-BASED LEARNING MULTIMEDIA AS TEACHING-LEARNING STRATEGY
This lesson is about the effective use of project-based multimedia learning requires through planning. Initial planning involves: clarifying goals and objectives, determining how much time is needed and extent of students involvement in decision making, setting up forms of collaboration, identifying and determining what resources are needed and deciding on the mode to measure what students learn.
The various phases of the project include: before the project starts, introduction of the project, learning the technology, preliminary research and planning, concept design and storyboarding, first draft production, assessing, testing, and finalizing presentations and concluding activities. The suggested steps for each phase were outlined in this lesson.
There are steps on the process of multimedia creations
* Planning- setting a goal, choosing a theme, specifying the purpose.
* Researching- collecting information from a variety of sources.
* Organising- arranging and displaying the ideas(writing, layout, graphics, ect.)
* Developing- putting everything into the computer
* Communicating- Presenting the project to an audience
* Evaluating- what worked? what needs improvement?
Don't be turned off by the many steps presented here on using project-based multimedia learning. Just bear in mind that we use the strategy to enable the student to remember and understand better content as they perform real-world tasks such as researching for answers problems, analyzing, assessing, making decisions, working with others. You are not tied to the steps shown here. Provided you know what you want to accomplish, common sense will tell you how to get there. But every beginner needs a roadmap to simply her task. After your first venture into project-based multimedia learning, you may be able to come up with a more simple roadmap.
