Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences of pre-service teachers utilizing multimedia technology to simulate knowledge constructs that are difficult to convey in text and/or verbal forms. Interviews with three first year teachers, as well as questionnaires completed by 12 pre-service teachers, were analyzed using a categorical coding procedure to identify factors related to the subjects' experiences. Results showed that, despite the teachers' positive reactions to the use of the multimedia technology, they reacted to it cautiously because of the cost of multimedia technology, the complexity of its application, and concerns about whether it was worth the time spent on it.
