Abstract

Multimedia scenarios can be used as effective constructivist instructional tools that create contextually authentic injury experiences, while also scaffolding instruction to help students move beyond their current skill/knowledge base. In the current study, a multimedia educational tool and accompanying pedagogical model were designed using TPACK theory to engage athletic therapy students in learning about comprehensive orthopedic injury assessments. The purpose of this research was to explore the impact of this multimedia tool on the nature of teaching and learning in an athletic therapy specific context. Multimedia technologies were embedded throughout the educational tool to enhance instruction and create contextually authentic scenarios. The research described herein describes the findings from this study which have direct implications for any educator who wishes to capitalize on the benefits of using pedagogically sound technology-enhanced scenarios.
