Interactive Multimedia Technology: Updated MegaPost-Resources For All: Interactive Multimedia and Universal Design for Learning

new technologies have made their way into an increasing number of classrooms, and many educators are aware of efforts such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Response to Intervention or Instruction (RTI), as well as innovative technologies that provide engaged, interactive learning experiences for students. In this post, I've consolidated information and updated links and resources from some previous posts from my TechPsych and Interactive Multimedia Technology blogs. Although many of the resources cited in this post relate to K-12 education, some of the information is useful for instructional designers, school administrators, researchers, college/university educators, parents, and technologists who are interested in developing interactive multimedia applications for children and teens.

It's a Wild Ride - Learning that Works

It's a Wild Ride is an extended interdisciplinary project that studies roller coaster design in science, mathematics, and language arts classrooms. Students learn and apply laws of motion, linear equations, and technical reporting. As the eight week project unfolds they move from learning content-specific knowledge and skills to applying what they learn in a group design task. Ultimately students must convince the theme park to accept their group's design through persuasive presentations. Look at interactive activities under the heading "Internet Activties to Expand Roller Coaster Knowledge"
