Communicating with Multimedia

  • How can we present our ideas beyond the black and white of the printed page?
  • How can we develop speaking and listening skills using digital media?

Anchor Standard:
Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.

SL.9-10.2. Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse media or formats (e.g.visually, quantitatively, orally) evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source.

SL.9-10.5. Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.
