Abstract: We plan to present the results of a study we conducted in a middle school science classroom in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in which we examined how student-made instructional movies may be used as a constructivist tool to foster meaningful student learning in heterogeneous classrooms. We will discuss the teaching methods and rubrics we used, how we used a Multiple Intelligence inventory to create collaborative student teams, and what we learned from our study. We will also show examples of student created movies and discuss the implications of the study as they relate to the selection of technology enhanced instructional strategies.
