To investigate and increase capacity in teacher and student creation of multimodal presentations.

What Does Multimodal Learning Mean?

"In a nutshell it means that the more different ways you learn something the more you will really learn it! The more different ways you learn something, the more you will remember it! The more different ways you learn something, the more you will genuinely understand it!" (Lazear, 2008).

Multimodal Learning in the 21st Century Adolescent

"Text is not just about books anymore, we need to change how we educate with the times we are in."

"With the ever, increasing use of the internet there is an unlimited amount of information in the form of print, visual, audio, and other modes that allow students to access content to gain knowledge."

Using Technology with Classroom Instruction that Works

“Communication and collaboration tools, such as blogs, wikis, e-mails, video conferencing, and social networks, can provide timely, interactive, and criterion-based feedback to students.”

"... students must learn how to use current technologies, but evaluate which ones work best for particular tasks..."

This helps me do my job! " allows students to collaborate without the constraints of time or geography."
