Kitakyushu JALT:

Love That Dog: Making a Difference with Multimedia

Date: Saturday, February 9th, 2013 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Linda K. Kadota

Inspired by Sharon Creech's Love That Dog, this presentation introduces ways to utilize multimedia in classroom activities to add color and fun to reading lessons. Multimedia elements (text, sound, video, animation, and graphics) are combined in ways that hold students' attention by stimulating multiple senses simultaneously. They are powerful tools to help students build analytical reading and writing skills, as well as confidence in their own abilities. Multimedia can make a difference when teaching poetry.
