Ride the Magic Carpet

Explore multimedia CDs, as well as teacher and student produced multimedia projects that contain various multimedia elements. Did these elements attract or distract from the project? Why? Would you use the same or different techniques? Why?


What elements would be useful in your subject area and grade level? Brainstorm a project that would include at least two of the following areas:

Digitized audio (i.e., voice, music, sound effects)

Audio clip art

Graphics created with a paint or draw program

Graphics clip art

Scanned images

Digital camera stills

Video captured stills

Digitized video clips






Relate the multimedia elements above to the multiple intelligences. If you were developing a multimedia project for students to use or create, how would your awareness of the multiple intelligences impact your assignment?
