Create a learning activity that incorporates CAI, a productivity tool or multimedia/hypermedia.
- The situated learning approach that utilizes teaching students the skills they need to learn in the context in which they are used is known as scaffolding. In this learning activity, Scaffolding learning through multimedia will be the learning activity that will allow my students to have access to new and different types of information wherein they can manipulate their skills on the computer through graphic displays or controlled experiments can be conveyed in a myriad of different media to their teacher, fellow students throughout the school, or even outside the classroom. The children will have a learning activity predicated upon science and the forces of motion as every child is expected to understand how to trace and measure motion, identify forces, predict changes when an object experiences a force, re- cord their results, and communicate their findings to others.

Identify the learning need that will be addressed and the software tool you will incorporate that will meet the need.
- The learning need will be learning about force and third-grade students will use technology within a situated learning approach to study force and motion. The Software tools will include ...
