By developing a standards-based, integrated learning system Multimedia Learning, LLC is trying to revolutionize the classroom "experience" as we know it.
An easy, ready-to-use method of teaching; Multimedia LearningÂs system is designed to keep kids interested, engaged, and involved throughout the learning process.
Created by classroom teachers, this innovative program offers educators standards-based classroom-ready resources that address different learning modalities including: audio, visual, written, and other learning styles.
Microsoft® PowerPoint® Ready
Each CD-ROM includes:
- PowerPoint® presentation consisting of 100-250 slides
- Lecture notes
- Crossword puzzles
- Document-based and other types of assignments
- Rubrics and standards-based assignments included in selected units
Each PowerPoint® presentation also includes:
- Audio including music and speeches in selected units
- Video in selected units
- Historical documents (primary and secondary sources)
- Political cartoons
- Textboxes that explain the content and provide points of discussion
The power of this easy-to-use system can also be presented and converted to several formats, including teacher-directed slide shows with an LCD or large screen monitor, overheads, photocopied handouts, or in a computer lab setting.
Dana Bagdasarian, Co-founder, said in an interview, "New technologies have created the ability to transform education as we know it today without being intimidating to the teacher or needing a computer science degree to operate."
"Many of todayÂs classroom materials and methods do not involve the students enough and when something is actually engaging, it is not carried into other materials and mediums within the classroom, so the effect is minimized and often short-lived." She added, "this is where we come in."
With classroom time limited and competition for studentÂs attention fierce, Multimedia Learning has created a start-to-finish approach. Producing core and supplemental integrated material, Multimedia Learning completely immerses the student in the learning experience while allowing the teacher to manage their classroom with comprehensive up-to-date standards-based materials supported with the latest understanding in teaching styles.
Dana closed with, "In short, we are taking an out-of-the-box approach to getting an effective classroom experience into a box."
