Welcome to Multimedia Workshop

spring 2015

Multimedia Workshop is a Ramapo College MSET elective.

This online course will explore multiple technologies and media for teachers to effectively apply to their lessons, students, and classroom.

Multimedia Workshop will have 4 components, each covering about 4 “classes” and each ending with a mini-project.
The 4 components are-

  • Google Classroom
  • Photoshop
  • iMovie for Mac people, Moviemaker for PC people
  • Google Chrome apps for teachers

If you don’t have Photoshop, iMovie or Moviemaker, I will provide free download information for you as we move forward.  Google Classroom and Google Chrome do not require software.

Big Idea

Various technologies can enhance lessons and improve student learning.

Essential Questions

  • What are the best technologies for my lesson?
  • How can I effectively integrate these tools into my lesson?
  • Are there new multimedia resources that I am unaware of? How do I find out about them?

Methodology and Expectations

A variety of instructional methods will be used in this class. They include, but are not limited to:
    • Assigned Readings
    • Class Discussions and Blogs
    • Software Explorations
    • Individual Project Work
