    Abstract

    This paper is about the integration of multimedia cases in elementary science teacher education. These cases have been developed within the framework of the MUST-project (MUltimedia in Science & Technology). The MUST-project is a joint venture on behalf of three Teacher Education Colleges, the National Institute for Curriculum Development and the University of Twente in the Netherlands. The project aims at developing multimedia cases for the professional development of prospective teachers in elementary science and technology education. In the first project year two working prototypes on CD-ROM were developed. During this year the MUST-team became increasingly aware of the significance of the implementation of multimedia cases in teacher education programs. This paper ends with the notion of flexibility-in-use that in our opinion is a promising way to reconcile the voice of theory and the voice of practice.
