Serving as a stimulus for cognitive engagement, multimedia provides the motivation for active participation and investment by all students. As educators realize the benefits multimedia offers for classroom use, this technology may become one of the most frequently used components for classroom instruction and teacher training. Multimedia alone will not provide adequate instruction; however, it is the content that is the essential ingredient in transforming learning. Multimedia can be the tool to support the learning and collaboration of educators in research-based strategies to improve learning. The integration of multimedia technology into education enables the learners to broaden their knowledge bases, extend their understanding and develop their creative skills. Using multimedia, the panelists will provide examples that illustrate the effectiveness of combining multimedia with rich content. The audience will be encouraged to participate in discussion and critical analysis.
