Media for Communication
Media objects can be used to communicate ideas and concepts to the learner. If the media is not specific to the topic, provide multiple forms of media to convey the topic. The learner may learn more thoroughly from videos rather than static images, for example. This can also include multiple media types for conveying understanding. Examples of this include paper/pencil, illustrations, film and music, and various web tools. Learners should also have access to manipulatives and models that allow the learner to solve problems using a variety of strategies.
