The multimedia approach of Educational Technology with examples

It is now accepted that for effective and efficient learning, the multimedia approach is very important. Edgar Dale (1969) through his “Cone of Experience” has shown us that the more the sense is stimulated, the more the person learns and the longer he remembers. Dale described how the different types of aids are interrelated with each other which are effective in the learning process. The different materials of the experiences presented in the cone may be classified into three:

  • Non-Projected Aids
  • Projected Aids and
  • Activity Aids
