Multimedia as a tool can enhance and strengthen the impact of activities in the field and in the science classroom. PBS LearningMedia videos, audio and interactives engage students and can be used to effectively demonstrate science concepts as well as to reinforce media literacy technologies as part of a core science curriculum. Here are 7 reasons (with resource examples) to intergrate PBS LearningMedia into science curriculum.
1.Visually demonstrate scientific ideas and concepts
Cell Membrane: Just Passing Through This interactive feature illustrates the movement of some materials through the cell membrane and describes the structures that make it possible.
