Multimedia in Teaching and Learning

This exhibition of multimedia work by students of Anglia Polytechnic University and the research projects at Ultralab was followed by a seminar with three presenters, including myself.
When May 11, 2005
Where Chelmsford, Essex
Reflection: This was a useful moment to consider the role of multimedia in education which we had pioneered a decade before.
Contribution: I organised this event with Roger Clark and colleagues in Ultralab, and presented my analysis on the role of multimedia in education.

Here are my closing points from my presentation:

Multimedia content is still needed

  • to offer a multimodal ‘knowledge’ base
  • to cut and paste into multimedia essays
  • to stimulate thought
  • to motivate
  • to engage with interesting learning objects

BUT

  • is too often passive,
  • and modelled on broadcasting

We don't need mountains of multimedia unless:

  • it can be seen in overview, searched and appropriated
  • it offers alternates
  • it exploits the potential of digital media
  • it offers completely new ways of expressing ideas

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
