The intention of this production thesis was to enhance the Creative Bible Lessons (CBL) with multimedia. This curriculum is published in Hong Kong and provides weekly Sunday School lessons to teach children. The CBL curriculum provides detailed lesson outlines and printed visual aids. The product of this thesis were 26 PowerPoint presentations to complement the lessons of one volume of the CBL curriculum. The material used was the original artwork owned by the publisher in Hong Kong. The different pictures and figures were prepared for digital use, arranged and animated according to the narrations in the respective volume. The presentations are intended to be used either in addition to or instead of the printed visual aids. The 26 multimedia files were designed as prototypes for the publisher to prepare an avenue for further exploration into this field, as educational technology is an increasing tool in children’s spiritual formation. The product was developed based on the literature review in the three areas of the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework by Punya Mishra and Matthew J. Koehler. To validate the product, a test group of twenty churches in the Philippines were provided with hardcopies of the CBL curriculum and asked to implement the lessons. For the period of six months the churches received the developed multimedia on a weekly basis. The researcher used observations, interviews and questionnaires to collect feedback concerning the implementation of the curriculum and the thesis product over a period of three months. Based on the findings, the product was evaluated and amended according to the Eternal, Synergistic Design Model by Caroline Crawford. It is recommended that the publisher should initiate further research to explore the effectiveness of the multimedia for the spiritual formation of children.
