As we educate 21st century students, it is vital they are adequately prepared. The focus of this research will be to analyze the effects, advantages, and disadvantages of a multimedia tool in a first grade classroom. The research will also weigh current and existing research based on utilization of multimedia. The framework used to drive this research into theoretical context was based on the Constructivist Approach, Multiple Intelligences, and Multimedia.
