Explore technology and multimedia! This course offers you the opportunity to conduct an extensive inquiry and research into subject matter needed to produce a multimedia presentation/project utilizing the full range of available multimedia functions (sound, video, computer graphics, animation, and text).
You will create a multimedia project by using Microsoft's PowerPoint. PowerPoint is not provided because most schools already have this program. You will work with tools such as scanners, CD-ROM drives, sound input devices, digital cameras, video cameras, and other tools available at your school. Whether you have limited resources or many, it is possible to begin authoring a multimedia project.
Your presentation will be built around a certain subject. The subjects are: The Astronomer -- explore the solar system; The Pacifist – discover the people who made the world more peaceful; The Engineer – learn about America’s structural achievements; The Ecologist – investigate ecosystems and the destructive effects of pollution; The Historian –- examine the historical accomplishments of American Presidents; The Travel Agent – take an exciting travel expedition through Europe. You will research the Internet and other sources to obtain your information for your presentation.
