"You know, before this, I thought research was like going to the library and just copying things down and then handing in a report or reading it to someone. This hypermedia stuff we're doing makes me see that research is real work and that you have to learn things from lots of angles, and you have to actually create new knowings. Like, WOW,man!" Mike, an eighth graderMike is talking about documenting his learning with hypermedia, a way of presenting text in nonlinear, multimedia form on "cards" or computer screens. Graphics, photos, drawings, video, music, speech, or animation can all be included with text on cards and linked or connected to other cards through the use of "buttons." The stacks of cards containing verbal and graphic text can then be manipulated, read, and navigated in a variety of ways to explore different associations and pursue varying lines of inquiry.Using hypermedia does not require technological expertise or a classroom full of the latest hardware and expensive software. Readily available programs like HyperCard(r) and HyperStudio(r) are self-tutoring and easy to learn and run even on the older, slower computers. This book explores how kids can be assisted to master the technology while teachers support their reading, learning, and a wide array of inquiry skills.Through their own classroom stories and research, the authors explore how they taught hypermedia skills within the context of real and personally relevant middle school classroom projects. They found that using hypermedia: is motivating and effective with all students, particularly those who are labeled or considered at risk; makes learning visible and accountable; supports students in achieving better reading and writing skills, in developing ideas, in doing organized, productive research, and in applying critical standards to their work; is applicable in all content areas and grade levels and not tied to any one particular program or software.Hyperlearning is for teachers, educational psychologists, curriculum developers, and technology coordinators who are seeking new ways to support the attainment of both rich conceptual learning and more powerful procedures for learning, reading, and composing. And it is particularly relevant for administrators interested in improving technology use in schools.If you want to get immediately into hypermedia, you should checkout this link to Paul Friedemann's web site:www.nconnect.net/~frito. There you'll find a rich variety of information, including links to hypermedia sites, questions and comments on hypermedia and technology, teaching resources on the web, and much more detail about this book.

Jeffrey Wilhelm is coauthor with Michael Smith and James Fredricksen of Get It Done!; Oh, Yeah?!; and So, What's the Story?. Jeff has cowritten or coedited four other Heinemann books, Going with the Flow, "Reading Don't Fix No Chevys", Strategic Reading, and Imagining to Learn. For Chevys he and coauthor Jeff Wilhelm received the NCTE David H. Russell Award for Distinguished Research in the Teaching of English. Jeff is an internationally-known teacher, author, and presenter. He is driven by a desire to help teachers to help their students to more powerful literacy and compassionate, democratic living. What he most wants for teachers to get out of his work is motivation, a vital passion and impulse to continue experimenting and learning about teaching, as well as ways to frame instruction so it is meaningful and compelling to students. A classroom teacher for fifteen years, Jeff is currently Professor of English Education at Boise State University. He works in local schools as part of a Virtual Professional Development Site Network sponsored by the Boise State Writing Project, and regularly teaches middle and high school students. He is the founding director of the Maine Writing Project and the Boise State Writing Project. He has authored or coauthored numerous books and articles about literacy teaching and learning. In addition to the Russell award, his "You Gotta BE the Book" won the NCTE Promising Research Award. Jeff has worked on numerous materials and software programs for students including Scholastic's e21 and ReadAbout, and has edited a series of 100 books for reluctant readers entitled The Ten. Jeff enjoys speaking, presenting, working with students and schools. He is currently researching how students read and engage with non-traditional texts like video game narratives, manga, horror, fantasy, etc. as well as the effects of inquiry teaching on teachers, students, and learning. Jeff grew up on a small strawberry farm in Northeastern Ohio. He loved the Hardy Boys as a boy, and has continued to love reading ever since, progressing through Hermann Hesse, John Steinbeck, and James Baldwin as literary mentors. In high school he was named a Harrier All-American for cross-country and track. He was then a two-time Small College All-American in Cross-country. He has competed Internationally in cross country, track, and nordic skiing. He now enjoys marathon nordic skiing and whitewater kayaking.
