This study attempts to examine the learning achievement with multimedia assistance in the process of knowledge transfer, in the sense that implies into the teacher as the instructor becomes the mentor to give the direction among the students to achieve their abilities and skills. This study uses quasi-experiments in the classrooms that are already available without any changes to the classroom situation and learning schedule (intact class). The collected data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential data analyses. The finding reveals that there is a significant difference between the outcomes of learning with multimedia and those with conventional media on integrated social studies. Learning integrated social studies with multimedia provides significant improvement in students’ learning outcomes. This is because multimedia can provide more opportunities for both teachers and students to create better classroom atmosphere, gain effective multi-purpose communication, and have a more interesting and lasting learning experience. In other words, multimedia can provide more spaces for developing creativity and innovation that can elevate students’ spirit and enthusiasm in learning.
