Abstract:Digital learning environments like Gynzy iPads have been increasingly developed to support teachers in offering differentiated education. These environments often include multimedia drills. When education is differentiated, instruction should be as well. However, teachers experience difficulties in offering differentiated instruction and instruction for multimedia drills has been little investigated. Therefore, this research focused on the development of guidelines for the integration of instruction in multimedia drills, for learning spelling rules in primary school. An initial design was created based on problem analysis and outcomes of previous research. This design was tested in an iterative process with teachers and students, who use Gynzy iPads in their classroom. After these testing rounds, the design was evaluated and modified in consultation with educationalists. After four rounds of testing, guidelines were developed, which could be divided into the categories: content’, ‘learner control’, ‘representation’ and ‘providing help’. In addition to initially developed criteria, the most important additional guidelines were: use multiple examples or vary with examples, choose most relevant terminology, use stepwise instructions, adapt hints or instructions based on different spelling phases and offer choices in showing or hiding buttons. These guidelines provide a baseline for further research about integration of instruction in multimedia drills.
