Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Sometimes you find a book that's so good you want to tell everyone about it and Vivi Lachs' book Making Multimedia in the Classroom is just such a book ... Quite simply, this is a joyous book because it humanises ICT, asserts its importance at the centre of learning and exalts creativity.' - The Times Educational Supplement

'The book provides an excellent introduction and guide for any teacher or student teacher who may be considering sensible and clear advice on planning and progression, and it is difficult not to feel that anyone reading this book would be much less likely to have a negative or frustrating experience in launching into multimedia initiatives ... a very practical, sensible and well written guide.' - Terry Haydn, Educational Review
