(TR15) Designing for Discovery: Interactive Learning Environments at Bank Street College

This series of interviews is an effort to discuss a broadly-defined word "multimedia" through a narrow focus as it applies to successful learning environments at Bank Street College, ranging from pre-electronic to electronic. A Bank Street professor, researcher, and two Bank Street School for Children teachers each offers a different perspective for thinking about the character and quality of the learning situation, the nature of learning materials, the structure of the learning environment, the kinds of interactions that are built into those environments, and the theory of learning and child development implicit in their work. Other Bank Street staff respond to the need for a variety of design models for electronic multimedia environments. Two models are discussed: The Voyage of the Mimi and Palenque.
