Why Multi Media? Why Digital Education? “ Technology has always been an important factor for education, but the rapid development of Internet and digital technology over the past decade is changing more than just the equipment used in the classroom: kids' learning styles and school behavior are constantly being shaped by the growing presence of the Internet”. Marc Prenksy www.digitalnative.org
What is multi media? In general, multimedia includes a combination of different content forms such as text, audio, still images, animation, video, and interactivity. Multimedia can recorded and played, displayed or accessed by computerized and electronic devices and can also be part of a live performance. Wikipedia

Rules of Academic Engagement <ul><li>Create a rewarding learning environment – make learning a social event </li></ul><ul><li>2. Put your students in charge of their learning </li></ul><ul><li>3. Specify your expectations </li></ul><ul><li>4. Provide early, rapid and continuous feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Professor William Pelz </li></ul><ul><li>State University of New York </li></ul>

What is Cognitive Theory in Multi Media Learning? Professor Richard Mayer has shown learners are better able to transfer their learning given multimodal instruction Wikipedia
What is multi media learning and how can it foster learning? 1. Modality principle: +
Students learn better from animation and narration than from animation, narration, and on-screen text“ (Mayer, 2001,p.184) 2.The Redundancy Principle Limited Capacity Assumption
Where do your eyes focus during this? To Show Geometrically That (a + b) 2 = a 2 + 2ab + b 2 (a + b) 2 = a 2 + 2ab + b 2 We are going to show geometrically that (a+b) 2 = a 2 +2ab + b 2 The area of the first piece is a 2 Split your square into four pieces The area of the third piece is also ab The last piece is b 2 Let’s start off with a square with side a +b The area of the second piece is ab a + b a + b a 2 ab ab b 2
Use few words to summarise than many extraneous words and pictures. 3. Active Processing Assumption Coherent summary
Multi Media Richard Mayer defines multimedia as any environment where material is presented in more than one format + + + +

Sine Rule Song (Imagine) “ Imagine there’s no sine rule Its easy if you try No a over Sin A No b over Sin B No c over Sin C This is the Sine Rule Yooo hoo Find a missing angle Or a missing side Of a triangle With the Sine Rule”
Students Teaching? We remember: 10% of what we read 20% of what we hear 30% of what we see 50% of what we see and hear 70% of what we discuss 80% of what we experience personally 90% of what we teach others

I hope you feel inspired to join me on the journey from being a digital immigrant and using minimal multi media in the classroom to adopting and utilising the resources available to fully integrate multi media into the mathematics classroom to enhance the learning for the digital natives. We have responsibility to engage not enrage our Digital Natives , Generation M our E generation … Thank you
