The Big 5






"Multimedia combines five basic types of media into the learning environment: text, video, sound, graphics and animation, thus providing a powerful new tool for education" (Asthana, n.d.)

I would like to become an expert in using all five of the main types of multimedia in my classroom to improve the learning environment. The five key types of multimedia are listed by A. Asthana (n.d.) as text, sound, animation, video, and graphics. Many of these are easily incorporated into a presentation format such as a Power Point. To effectively add multimedia to the classroom, Ms. Asthana (n.d.) suggests that we evaluate and analyze the situation and our learners before choosing the type of multimedia to use as the ultimate goal is to improve student engagement and learning.

What multimedia would you like to add to your classroom to help improve your learning environment? How would adding multimedia to your lessons help improve student engagement and learning?
