From the Paper:

"In multimedia project classrooms, teachers spent more time having students practice skills on their own with strategic assistance provided by teachers as needed than having students watch or listen as teachers performed a task for them or explained a process to them. Data revealed that multimedia project teachers were more likely to give major responsibility to students for their own learning than were comparison teachers. Teachers in multimedia project classrooms were also more likely to be engaged in helping students by moving about the classroom and responding to student questions."
