Abstract
A MULTIMEDIA-BASED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR 8-12TH GRADE EARTH SCIENCE EDUCATION WILL BE CREATED ON CD-ROM AND VIDEODISC. THE SYSTEM CONSISTS OF A VISUAL DATABASE DELIVERED IN BOTH ANALOG AND DIGITAL FORMATS, DETAILED LESSON PLANS, AND TEXTUAL SUPPORT MATERIALS. THE SYSTEM WILL PERMIT THE GRADUAL INTEGRATION OF NEW, THEMATIC, INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACHES TO EARTH SCIENCE TEACHING INTO EXISTING DISCIPLINE-BOUND CLASSROOMS. IN THE PHASE I RESEARCH A PROTOTYPE VIDEODISC AND CD-ROM WILL BE USED TO TEST SIX REPRESENTATIVE EARTH SCIENCE LESSONS IN 8TH, 10TH AND 12TH GRADE CLASSROOMS. IN PHASE II A COMPREHENSIVE MULTIMEDIA COLLECTION WILL ENCOMPASS GEOLOGY, ASTONOMY, OCEANOGRAPHY, AND METEOROLOGY.
