* How do I organize project-based learning in my classroom?* How do I ensure projects address curriculum standards?* What can I do to maximize the benefits my students get from using technology?* How do I prevent technology problems from eclipsing learning goals?This book answers teachers' questions about enhancing student achievement through project-based learning with multimedia. It's a guide for anyone interested in helping students produce multimedia presentations as a way to learn academic content. Weaving together the perspectives of teachers, researchers, and staff of the award-winning Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project and the WEB project, the authors address teaching and learning issues central to successful technology projects, such as assessment, subject-area learning, and connecting to the real world. Increasing Student Learning Through Multimedia Projects offers concrete and practical advice to help teachers through the challenges of working with multimedia projects, including:* Instituting a production process,* Getting financial and logistical support and training, and* Taking on new teaching roles.
