Teaching and Learning with Multimedia

Project Staff: Lisa Tripp and Becky Herr-Stephenson

Teaching and Learning with Multimedia looks at kids’ media use at school. In this study, our project staff will be assisting teachers who are implementing multimedia curriculum at five middle schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District and talking with students about the ways in which they use media at school. The school-based research is complemented by home visits and interviews with students’ families. Please see the project description for Digital Media in an Urban Landscape for more information on both the school- and home-based research.
