Postmodernism is a concept that is still emerging into the cultural dialogue and slowly contributing to the changing notions about educational processes. Through an original interpretation and multimedia presentation of a classic children's story, "The Three Little Pigs (Revisited)," three such developing notions--learner-initiated learning, the construction of narrative beds (narrative learning), and the power of metaphors--are illustrated and investigated. How instructional technologies fit into the emerging postmodern theory of curriculum is also addressed. (Author)
