Presentations and Multimedia

Multimedia in the Classroom

With computers, mobile devices, projectors and Interactive White Boards (IWBs) becoming more common in American classrooms, teachers increasingly have greater opportunities to bring multimedia resources into the classroom. Whether creating a presentation to guide student learning, or showcasing a video to illustrate a new concept, presentations and multimedia add a new dimension to the classroom.

In this section, we walk you through 20 different multimedia tools that could be integrated into the classroom. For each tool, you may discover:

  • Why you should consider the technology
  • A list of possible tools
  • Tutorials for getting started with the tool
  • Suggestions of how to integrate the technology into your curricula
