Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Using the Design, Decide, Develop-Evaluate (DDD-E) model, the authors present practical outlines for implementing multimedia projects in grades 4-12. Visuals and reproducible worksheets cover organizing projects, flowcharts, storyboards, design guidelines, and using images. Sample projects are given for using multimedia documents, slide shows, Web-page production, hypermedia programs, digital-video programs, and various presentation tools." - Curriculum Connections

"[T]hese authors do it right. They expect learners to do major research on a question, go through a thorough design phase, and provide guidance for the various technologies, tht the teacher-librarian offers. At each step, the authors provide assessment rubrics to ensure that process and content learning are going on. No cut, paste, and present here; rather, the reader finds deep understanding followed by well-developed presentations in a variety of formations that cover the full spectrum of video, audio, web, and digital photography. The strategies are provided to implement a program of solid multimedia presentations that support and expand learning….Highly recommended, particularly for upper-elementary through high school teacher-librarians." - Teacher Librarian

Booknews
The authors present a model called "Decide, Design, Develop, and Evaluate" (DDDE), that can be used as a template for designing producing, and assessing multimedia projects for grades 4-12. They cover all phases, from planning, classroom management, and computer scheduling options to assessment strategies and techniques. In addition, they define the various media components that are available for multimedia and detail the basics of three development tools: Hyperstudio, HTML, and PowerPoint.
