Summary
  • Parents are looking for quality interactive multimedia instruction for their children and are less inclined to believe teachers know best because of lower national test scores. Educators and multimedia experts suggest parents closely examine the child's experience while using software to determine what is best. Most importantly, children should make their way through a program naturally and finish with a feeling of accomplishment. Observers claim feedback is an essential element, stating the best learning programs for kids let them know how well they are doing. Another opinion is that parents should look for CD-ROM titles that parallel world events and real-life experiences. Word of mouth and looking over magazine reviews are good methods for selecting the best programs. Some programs that figured prominently in polls of experts were Davidson's Math Blaster and the whole Broderbund line of edutainment CD-ROMs.
