This chapter describes five commonly held principles about multimedia learning that are not supported by research and suggests alternative generalizations that are more firmly based on existing studies.  The questionable beliefs include the expectations that multimedia instruction:  1) yields more learning than live instruction or older media; 2) is more motivating than other instructional delivery options; 3) provides animated pedagogical agents that aid learning; 4) accommodates different learning styles and so maximizes learning for more students; and 5) facilitates student managed constructivist and discovery approaches that are beneficial to learning

This is a wow presentation that rattles off ideas for researching and telling one's own digital story one after another. Starts with search techniques: Sculpture by the Sea web site has a twitter feed, people carry mobile devices, can give opinions, take pictures, tag them. Google search gives you a feed. Blog search for people's opinions, technorati, Twitter using hash tags, photos tagged on Flickr, mapping service to show locations (cell phones geotag photos) - shows in screen cast with embedded web cam how to add RSS feeds to help you feed search results to you; e.g. to a Netvibes page. Talks about sending students out to use phones to take pictures, get recordings, videos. Presentation: Voicethread, Animoto,, makes panoramas from single photos, for creating ARG presentations, Google forms to collect data and present it in spreadsheet, charts, etc (does conditional branching)

Presentation Title: Building on Analog Success with 2.0 Technology

Presentation Description: This presentation will focus on an established successful 6th grade capstone project called “The Biggest Dig.” In the 5th year of this research project, myself and Jon Greenberg, the Humanities teacher, collaborated to modernize the project using web 2.0 technologies such as wikis and online note taking software.

This video includes an overview of the project, review the tools used, how we decided to transition certain project components to web 2.0 tools, student feedback, and finally, a review of the final product and our assessments.

The goal of this presentation is to demonstrate that teacher collaboration and sharing of ideas is a fundamental component to enhancing already established curriculum. The idea that you do not have to throw out everything you have done in the analog world to adapt to web 2.0 world is our central theme.

Presentation Title: Keeping Literacy in 21st Century Literacy

Presentation Description: In this session I outline the movement towards multiple literacies and 21st century literacies. Within this framework I present concrete strategies and methods for pursing the traditional notion of literacy – reading and writing fluency – in an online context. In particular I hope to show how “think alouds” and other literacy modeling strategies can be enhanced by Web 2.0 technologies like Diigo for social bookmarking and Screentoaster for easy screen capture and content delivery. Part of this enhancement comes from the ability to customize instruction to individual student needs and interests. This presentation is a relatively equal mix of teaching theory, literacy pedagogy, and technology integration.
