Multimedia Technologies – a Path to Creativity



This article describes psychological, creative and cognitive problems which disabled students face while studying „Direction of multimedia programs“ course at Information Technologies faculty of MSUPE. We argue that students need not so much instrumental approach to multimedia, as theoretical and paradigmal adaptation to intensively developing reality of digital revolution. On the basis of our experience in teaching ”Direction of Multimedia Programs“ course and creative work with students we present recommendations on helping disabled students overcome psychological barriers in development of new (multimedia) tools to fully reveal their humanitarian potential.
