Members of the Department of Science and Mathematics Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia have developed a range of multimedia resources for undergraduate education students that allow the students to participate in authentic tasks that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to arrange for large numbers of students. The multimedia resources are designed to project students into their future role as classroom teachers as it has been observed that those students who do this tend to perform better as they can see the relevance of learning opportunities presented in their studies. Observation of student work using these resources shows deeper thinking and enhanced reflective practices in considering how children think and how classrooms can be managed.
