    My Literature Riview 

    Literature Riview about multimedia based learning

    In this era of rapid information technology development, multimedia is one of the important media that can streamline learning as said by Spector et al “multimedia is an important part of our daily lives at home and at work. Today, there is widespread agreement among educational theoriest on the point that educational applications of modern information and communication technologies can be made more effective when they are embedded in multimedia learning environments created to enable productive learning.”[1] According to Mayer in Orey et al “multimedia is defined here as the use of multiple types of media, particularly the presentation of words and pictures together, during a presentation of information. Multimedia learning encompasses building mental representations from words and pictures, and multimedia instruction includes words and pictures intended to promote learning.”[2] The next Wan Ng has a definition of multimedia is multimodal and is the simultaneous use of two or more modes of representation, for example narrative (audio) over a picture (visual) usiang fotobabble application.”[3]                The next definition is put forward Vic Costello which defines “multimedia is any combination of text, graphics, video, audio, and animation in a distributable format that consumers can interact with using a digital device.[4] Furthermore Mayer in Orey mentioned six key principles for consideration in multimedia design. First, designers should combine text with content- related images only when learners have low prior knowledge and possess sufficient cognitive abilities to process both the text and pictures. Second, the spatial contiguity principle recommends presenting written text in close spatial proximity to related images. The temporal contiguity principle is third and takes the concept of placement further by suggesting the presentation of spoken words in close temporal proximity to related images. Fourth, the modality principle proposes the use of spoken words instead of  written text for animation. Related to modality, the specific redundancy. principle clearly states that written text should not duplicate spoken words and represents the fifth principle in multimedia design. Sixth, the coherence principle advises against the use of extraneous words and pictures or unnecessary sound or music. The combination of the six principles represent an array of tools to be used by instructional designers and multimedia designers to maximize learners’ cognitive capabilities to receive and process information.[5]               Based on the above exposure, it can be concluded that multimedia is a collection of media in the form of text, graphics, audio, animation, and video that can be seen and heard to convey messages and enable interactive relationships with users.

      Great review Desi. If I may suggest, it would be terrific if you could add local literature — written by Indonesian-based scholars and practitioners.

      Thanks for sharing!

    Hi everyone,
    It’s been great to meet up and learn with you all. I would like to extend my gratefulness to UQ, THF and UNJ for giving me this opportunity. I hope we will achieve the targeted learning goal of this program.

    As an update on my project, I have had my team meeting last Tuesday, reporting on the 3 days learning sessions we had and discussed about my TAP with them. Basically, they support the attempt of transformation planned. In fact, we even come up with a more gigantic transformation plan on the school system we have. I have also distributed on line questionaire form to teachers in order to collect data and opinions from them. However, things are a bit ups and downs at school that I have not been able to start writing my blog. I will do my best to start writing it by this weekend.

    As I reviewed on our last 3 days F2F workshop readings, I have this tickling question in mind.
    “If a leader is not an innovator, will he/she be able to perform as a good leader? Can we train a person who happened to be not innovative to become an innovator?”
    What do you think of that?
    Maybe Mr. Vicente can give me some insight about it.

    Appreciate your input and good luck with your project.

    Best regards,

      Hi Vency,

      Many thanks for your post and the very intriguing question that you raise which I have re-phrased (based ony my interpretation [which maybe faulty]): Do leaders need to be innovative?

      My quick response is that in theory the answer should be YES, But in practice, there are several manifestations of leadership practicing different level of innovation.

      In the second leg of our F2F sessions, we will be fortunate to have some time with Prof Gopinathan, the Academic Advisor of HEAD Foundation, who will speak about educational transformations in Singapore. You can find more information about Prof Gopi in the link below:

      A couple of years ago, Prof Gopi and I wrote a journal article in which we critiqued Singapore’s main innovation movement, represented by the policy Thinking Schools Learning Nation (TSLN). In the article, we argued that the innovation that Singapore was pursuing was “adaptation” and not the really deep type that required “learning”. An entrenched meritocratic ethos in Singapore is one of the main reasons that this implementation of what I would describe as a “limited level of innovation.” If you have time, you may want to read the article that Prof Gopi and I wrote about this issue:

      Thank you again and best regards,

        I agree. Leaders have to be innovative. Thus, is it possible to train a person to be innovative ?

    Hello everyone, agree with Fadhil.
    I have spoken to the foundation regarding my project and they are agree.
    Dr. Vicente, I have a tiny issue about the project, since our school is under renovation. Can I change little bit into their own classroom.
    since I don’t have any room available, I will use their classroom for creative room. What do you think Dr. Vicente?

    • Principal/Editor 6:26 am on March 7, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks for the message.

      I see no problems with modifying your project. This is a reality that we face –modifying our projects as we try to implement these — as we move along our timelines. So, it should not be a problem.

      Good luck!

    Good morning everyone,

    As a teacher I feel so lucky being among you all, the team leaders that concerning on doing transformation in leadership related to  education. 

    As we all know, technology has change most part of our life, especially in education. Technology has become one of the biggest part in learning section and has influenced much on the students learning. 

    The students we are teaching today are Z generation, a generation that born and grow among technology, therefore they also called as “Digital Native”. Technology and digitize are part of their life. They really engage with it and really wish and enjoy learning process that use technology.

    And it is no more become a question whether we(as a teacher) want to change or not, It’s became a must, yaps, a must, WE MUST CHANGE, do the transformation in teaching today’ generation.

      Good morning Fadhil and thank you for your inputs. Yes, we really should feel a certain sense of gratefulness as well as a responsibility as we undertake transformative projects in our respective contexts.

      As your critical friend, I wanted to provide you with an alternative view in relation to the idea of “digital natives”. Some scholars and practitioners believe that this phrase is inaccurate some even call it a myth.

      Take a look at this article, that I want to share with you:

      Looking forward to your thoughts and comments!

      Hi Fadil,
      Nice thought. I agree with your statement “We must change”. The rapid growth of technology surely change people’s way of thinking, act and react on certain matters. Yet, we also need to set a bounderies on the technology usage. As we can see, some countries are applying what we call “pendulum swing” – reviewing and restricting the use of gadget in school- upon seeing the outcome of too much use of technology.

      I think, we surely need to keep up with technology enhancement but we also need to use our wisdom in using it.
