Artifact Introduction: During our third week in multimedia class, we were to research the Modality and Redundancy principles. Keeping these principles in mind we used Haiku Deck to create a presentation on the topic of our choice. I decided to create a presentation on choosing Good Fit Books for my fourth-grade students to use at the beginning of the school year when we begin Daily Five. This is a fun lesson for which I bring in shoes, but it will be a wonderful addition to have a presentation to guide the lesson.
Reflection of Learning: The modality principle states that individuals learn better when listening to audio narration rather than on-screen text. The redundancy principle states that having both on-screen text and narration is redundant and impedes learning. (Clark & Mayer, 2011) Therefore, using Haiku Deck was wonderful for this project because of the limited text that can be used on the presentation, it really helped me keep these principles in mind. While creating the presentation and choosing the images I kept the narration in mind to ensure that I was creating a presentation where students were going to use dual channels and connect the concepts about choosing books to what they were seeing with the shoes. I chose to keep one idea (shoes or books) per slide so as to not overload the cognitive processing of the learners. I really enjoyed using this program and all the benefits it offered.
