Abstract

This paper addresses strategies educators can use to engage students during problem and project based lessons incorporating multimedia tools. Problem and project based assignments correlate with Vygotsky’s theory of constructivism. These types of activities have been shown to increase student satisfaction and achievement. Unfortunately, many educators still have students create pencil and paper based products to complete these assignments. Incorporating digital tools allows students to demonstrate learning in the subject matter and work as a professional in the field would. No fancy equipment is necessary. Online multimedia tools coupled with sites that provide content related multimedia can easily be used by students to complete problem and project based assignments.
