This study examines the design and use of an instructional rubric to guide the use of Web 2.0 multimedia tools such as EduGlogster. The rubric design is aligned with the new Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, and speaking. Responses from graduate students in a M. Ed. Program show that they believe the reading strategies helped them identify the main idea of the project overall as well as the main idea of each supporting article and video that they included in the project. They also expressed being thoughtful about selecting Internet resources that would extend understanding of the main idea. Since finding the main idea and supporting details is at the heart of reading comprehension, the responses from these students support use of this rubric as one tool for helping educators and their K-16 students meet learning goals when using multimedia
