The Interdisciplinary Middle Years Multimedia (IMYM) model grew out of the successful curriculum-based research and development project of the same name, which was piloted in the years 1995-2001.

The IMYM model demonstrated how the infusion of information and communication technologies (ICT) with promising instructional practices such as inquiry and constructivism could add value to teaching, learning, and assessing.

IMYM was assessed internally using action research strategies and externally by a Canadian educational research company. The IMYM model was piloted in nearly 100 rural and urban schools throughout Manitoba and is still being implemented voluntarily in schools and school divisions across the province.

Since 2005, the Literacy with ICT Across the Curriculum initiative carries on with the model first developed by IMYM.
