It is intended for teachers and pupils to use
Hyperstudio and Illuminatus in the senior classes (4th - 6th)
for creating multimedia presentations and interactive presentations.
Children in the Sixth class are already familiar with using Hyperstudio
and it is hoped to build on the skills learned in this programme
and comparing/contrasting both programmes. Children will start
with Hyperstudio before moving on to Illuminatus.
Children will be active participants in the project,
not only in the all important planning and researching stage,
but also in creating interactive multimedia publications. Feedback
from the children to the teacher and to each other will be an
important element in the project.
It is also intended that teachers would use the
programme to create their own interactive assessments based on
work done in the classrooms with the children. Children will be
active participants in evaluating the assessments and suggesting
ways of improving same.We would also hope to publish work to Scoilnet
