Activity 10 «Creating a multimedia presentation»

group: iTEC (Innovative Technologies for an Engaging Classroom)

Instead of a written report, the students create a multimedia production. This can be, for example, a video, a collage or an audio story.

Learning outcomes



Students can often help each other with multimedia work, as they have learned certain editing software skills on their own. The teacher often is not required to support in tool use.


Sharing, presenting and teaching other Creating a multimedia presentation can be encouraging and rewarding to students, because they get to work on a product that they can share with fellow students, other teachers, friends outside of school and their parents to present what they did and learned in school. They can also use the videos to transfer their learning to others.

Reasons for using technology

Technologies such as digital video cameras and audio recording suggest the creation of videos that are rewarding to look at after the project concluded.


Required time


After the teams analyse the information they found they can build a presentation using a diverse range of media showing their results.

The teacher present the benefits and drawbacks of different media of representation to students to initiate a class discussion.

The students chose a purpose, an audience and a medium for their presentation.

They create a storyboard that visualises the narrative of the media presentation and decide, which of the collected files, such as photographs, video clips, voice recordings of interviews, geo tags, etc., they could use to represent their conclusions in a meaningful way to a particular audience.

The teams collect missing multimedia elements and information, such as photos, a script, record voice, audio and video, interview people, make animation, etc., and upload it to a computer (see activities 2 and 3).

Teams build and design the presentations. They edit their data and information to fit the storyboard narrative.

During the process, the students think about the production process, planned steps and requirements. This can involve collaborative assessment (see activity 5) and documentation of works progress with videos (see activity 7). Teams may share their data and their work in progress with other teams and the teacher (see activity 8).
