Students learn science best by doing science, but some complex concepts are more difficult to carry out in a classroom setting than others. This is where engaging multimedia and technology, such as video or digital simulations, can help to enhance teaching and increase student understanding. When used correctly, multimedia can harness students’ natural curiosity, inspiring investigation, exploration, and problem solving. This edWebinar will provide guidance on how to effectively use multimedia to enhance science teaching and strengthen understanding.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the middle school grades. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
