Andrei, Stefan; Osborne, Lawrence; Smith, Zanthia – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2013
The current learning process of Deaf or Hard of Hearing (D/HH) students taking Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) courses needs, in general, a sign interpreter for the translation of English text into American Sign Language (ASL) signs. This method is at best impractical due to the lack of availability of a specialized sign…

Gillett, Jason – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2011
The purpose of my action research is to create meaningful virtual field trips that give students many of the same benefits as actual field trips. Since educational budget cuts are preventing students from participating in real field trips there needs to be an alternative way to deliver that content. I hope to demonstrate how I am improving my…

Niemitz, Matthew; Slough, Scott; Peart, Leslie; Klaus, Ann.; Leckie, R. Mark; St. John, Kristen – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2008
The use of interactive virtual expeditions in classroom learning environments is an effective means to engage learners in understanding science as an inquiry process, infusing current research and relevant science into the classroom, and positively affecting learner attitudes towards science as a process and a career. A comparative analysis of the…

Parton, Becky Sue – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2006
A review of the literature yields many intriguing applications of interactive multimedia technology that can be seen through a series of "snapshots" describing current projects and initiatives for deaf education. The five main categories chosen to represent these activities are: instructional design, communication bridges, skill development…

Dowling, Carolyn – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1997
From dynamic spreadsheets through "microworlds" to virtual reality, the convenience and, in many instances, the seemingly intrinsic appeal of simulated environments exist in some tension alongside concerns regarding the relationship of the simulated to the "real" and the possible consequences for human thought, learning, and behavior. A selection…
