Project Aims
  • To evaluate the suitability of a multimedia authoring package (HyperStudio) as a recording and presentation tool in the LCVP.
  • To enhance the educational experience of the LCVP student through the use of ICT by:
    1. Exposing them to a wider range of software and hardware, thus providing an expanded awareness of the potential of ICT
    2. Increasing their ICT skills
    3. Developing their creativity through the production of a multimedia project
    4. Developing other non-ICT skills and qualities, such as communication skills, working as part of a team, taking initiative etc.
    5. To develop draft resource materials to assist in the implementation of this project.
  • To test the feasibility of including a multimedia presentation on an LCVP activity as a portfolio item for assessment.
  • To produce a comprehensive evaluation report to support/reject the feasibility of including such an item.
  • Indicative Outcomes
  • An evaluation report on the use of multimedia authoring software (HyperStudio) in the LCVP.
  • An evaluation of the potential for the presentation of coursework for assessment in a novel format.
  • A substantial set of resource materials for national dissemination, in terms of teaching materials for the use of multimedia authoring software (HyperStudio) in the LCVP and sample LCVP multimedia materials produced by the participating schools in the project.
  • A cohort of teachers who are highly trained in the use of multimedia authoring software (HyperStudio).
  • A local/regional/national exhibition of the fruits of the project.
  • A more informed, enriched, and skilled group of students who have benefited greatly from their experience in general use of ICT and as a multimedia authoring tool.
