A hypermedia approach for developing research and reporting skills


Whole language and cooperative learning are effective ways to help students develop and integrate academic skill. The computer makes available the possibility of multimedia opportunities to apply whole language, cooperative learning, and other strategies to promote the development of cognitive, affective, and social skills.The project reported in this paper explored a successful strategy for using HyperCard and interactive technology to accomplish these goals. The qualitative analysis verified that students became effective learners and communicators through the research and design process. The technology proved to be a motivator for students and increased the rate of development of basic skills as well as their knowledge of subject matter.In addition to the written paper, this presentation will include videotaped segments focusing on key project activities and examples of children's hypermedia products.
