Relative Advantage of Multimedia


Artifact Introduction: During our fifth week in Integrating Technology into the Classroom Curriculum, we were to read chapter seven in Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching & reflect on the advantages of utilizing multimedia in the classroom. We were then to apply this information to our own classroom and chosen content area and reflect on the relative advantage of utilizing multimedia in a Vlog (Video Blog) format.


Reflection of Learning/Standard Connection:  This assignment required me to really delve into my curriculum and analyze the relative advantage of using multimedia in my classroom on a regular basis.  I got the experience to really become familiar with the benefits and various applications of multimedia, some ways that I was already familiar and others in novel ways that I had never heard of before but want to implement.

  • AECT Standard 2.1 Creating: To write about the relative advantage of multimedia, I needed to apply content pedagogy to create and reflect upon appropriate applications of processes and technologies to improve learning and performance outcomes.
  • AECT Standard 2.2 Using: To write about the relative advantage of multimedia, I thought of ways to implement appropriate educational technologies and processes based on appropriate content pedagogy.
  • AECT Standard 2.3 Assessing/Evaluating: I demonstrated an inquiry process that assessed the adequacy of learning and evaluated the instruction and implementation of educational technologies and processes grounded in reflective practice while reflecting upon the relative advantage of utilizing multimedia in the fourth-grade classroom setting.
  • AECT Standard 3.2 Using: In order to effectively reflect on the relative advantage of using multimedia in the fourth-grade ELA classroom, I needed to make professionally sound decisions in selecting appropriate processes and resources to provide optimal conditions for learning based on principles, theories, and effective practices.

About jasminequezada

I’m extremely lucky to call Boise Idaho, an outdoor haven of a beautiful little city, the place I call home. I teach 4th grade dual language. This means that I teach native English speakers, Spanish, and native Spanish speakers, English, by using both languages to teach the regular 4th grade curriculum to nine year old’s. I also have an extremely creative and inquisitive seven year old son who keeps me playing, laughing, and on my toes all day long, he is my favorite person. My boyfriend’s name is Victor and he is my partner in discovering the outdoors, which is why living in Boise is perfect for us! While I enjoy being outdoors, I also love technology and all of the doors it has opened to humanity to learn, grow, and evolve. This is why I consider it vital for myself as an educator to delve deeper into this technological world so I can continue to serve as a guide for my students, in their discovery of the world.
