This study investigate how three different interactive multimedia tools for conveying concepts related to size and scale were perceived and experienced by two groups: (a) 224 novice/pre-service teachers, and (b) eight instructional designers and trainers of pre-service teachers.

Differences found between what these teachers and what instructional designers noticed about the interactive multimedia tools can inform the design of learning strategies for
pre-service teachers training on the adoption and evaluation of multimedia for learning.

Specifically, pre-service teachers focused on classroom management issues, but the instructional designers focused on aspects of instructional design and pedagogy.
