What is a Multimedia presentation? A multimedia presentation uses one or several forms of media (slides, pictures, music, movies, computer graphic images, sounds) to present information in an interesting manner. Computer multimedia programs include Hyperstudio (Apple/Mac) and PowerPoint (Windows/ PC’s). For this project we will be using PowerPoint and the PC computer lab located on the 2nd floor of the library.
Resources: Students will use the world history textbook supplemented by materials from the library including books, encyclopedias, movies, CD-ROM's and access to the Internet with marked sites on the Russian Revolution. Students will also have access to handouts on how to use PowerPoint and ample time in the computer lab to complete the assignment.
