Abstract

In this research, we examined the impact of a cognitive apprenticeship-style learner-as-multimedia-designer environment on middle school students' cognitive skills development. The findings showed that engaging students as designers could increase their understanding of the importance of the cognitive skills involved. The skills mostly affected in this study included planning, presentation, collaboration, and testing. Following a design model used in the multimedia industry, the middle school students created multimedia projects for a real audience using state-of-art multimedia tools, and learned such design tasks as storyboarding, designing, and evaluating.
