Project-based learning with multimedia

SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning evaluated the Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project from 1995 to 2000. The evaluation examined three aspects of the Multimedia Project: its dissemination across various schools and districts, its impact on teaching practice, and its effects on student achievement. This page is designed to offer the evaluation findings to specific audiences: Technology Coordinators and Administrators, Teachers, Students and Parents, Business Partners, and Researchers. There are also Quick Links to the full evaluation reports, slide presentations, research and evaluation tools, and related research into education and technology.
