Abstract:Multimedia is present in our everyday life, thus the knowledge how to use it became a necessity. The relation of the multimedia with the school education is very complex: we speak about education with multimedia and also about multimedia education. In this paper we propose to characterize the above relations, analyzing the Romanian school curricula with regards the utilization of multimedia in learning. This opening represents the first step to multimedia education. In our investigation we analyzed the school textbooks from seven curricular areas. The obtained results show the total unconcern of curriculum makers on promoting multimedia in school education.
Keywords: multimedia in education, secondary school curricula.
