This book offers an introduction to the issues and practicalities of using multimedia in the classroom - both primary and secondary - and across a range of subject areas. It draws on material from a range of case studies and focuses on areas of concern for teachers and researchers. Using IT effectively continues to be a problem for many teachers, and there is still a long way to go before organising this properly. This book takes a thorough look at IT in the school. It examines issues such as IT and the National Curriculum, foreign language teaching, differing curricular needs and the opportunities and constraints of groupwork. It also discusses talking books and primary reading, and ways which multimedia supports readers. The book also looks at some of the more philosophical issues such as implications of home computers and the limits of independent learning, the notion of edutainment and the relationship between motivation, enjoyment and learning. Janet Collins is at the Open University, Michael Hammond and Jerry Wellington are both at the University of Sheffield.
