English abstract

Libraries have been established and always utilized in old fashion and modern school and academic environments in order to support educational programs. However, new instructional technologies have changed traditional library-based teaching models. Multimedia approach has shown successful in teaching different courses to different learners. However, there is little known how a combination of library and multimedia approach can be implemented and measured in teaching. This paper focuses on an innovative approach in which a blended library and multimedia model has been developed to teach geography concepts. It was implemented in teaching geography in a first grade class in an Iranian secondary school. The empirical results revealed the effectiveness of the blended model in learning and retention of geography.
