Abstract

This article presents a review of the literature multimedia learning in science. It is no small matter that teachers value using technology, more specifically multimedia in teaching. But this interest falls far short when it comes to application. Why is it so? This paper tries to find the reasons behind this dichotomy. Then, research from science related areas that address important issues relevant to multimedia design in conjunction with Mayer's and Sweller's theories is presented. Finally, examples of research involving effective science learning experiences for students with multimedia is presented, and directions for future research are shown. The purpose of this paper is to encourage research in order to expand the use of multimedia in the sciences by overcoming the weaknesses that exist at present.
