The 130th Annual Meeting of APHA
4242.0: Tuesday, November 12, 2002: 4:30 PM-6:00 PM
|Public health is rich with multimedia developed by health educators and interested professionals. Come prepared to learn about three efforts employing multimedia with adolescents. The theme of a new, interactive nutrition education CD-ROM for high school students, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is On Your Own: Explorations in Nutrition and Physical Activity. The program addresses seven topics--lowfat eating, impact of advertising on food choices, fiber and water, physical activity, savvy food shopping, skipping meals, and fast food. Another speaker will discuss how using an investigative reporter theme, tailored information is presented to users via text, audio, and video to accommodate different learning styles. In this session three drama vignettes which are produced on video with the primary purposes of provoking interest and questionning around attitudes that prohibit behaviour change (thus facilitating the teachable moment) and teacher support materials to convey the factual information on cancer prevention and early detection will also be explored. The last paper discusses the urgent need for broad-reaching prevention efforts that reach youth when they are most vulnerable to initiation into smoking. Learn how using an investigative reporter theme, tailored information is presented to users via text, audio, and video to accommodate different learning styles.|
|Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant in this session will be able to: |
1) Describe an iterative process for developing health education using multimedia; and identify strengths and weaknesses of computer-based health education instruction.
2) To recognize the need to engage the student by innovative approaches in order to create the teachable moment; 2) To see the value of using drama vignettes in facilitating the teachable moment; 3) To evaluate several drama vignettes (short videos) in the classroom for knowledge and attitudinal changes in cancer prevention and early detection.
3) List 5 components of effective tobacco education; identify the key elements of tailored motivational feedback for preventing tobacco use in early adolescents; list 3 benefits of interactive multimedia for the delivery of health education; describe the key considerations for developing interactive prevention education for early adolescent students; and, define interactive components in multimedia that enhance student motivation, attention, and willingness to reduce personal risk behaviors.
