|Identify the strengths of this teaching resource
The resource zooms in to the topics one at a time to help young students know what part is being discussed. The layout is simple and short which is perfect for this age group as the questions are prompts to having group discussions rather than students having to click and access information themselves it is prompted for them. It engages students by involving them in discussions. The use of media helps engage children in begining to discuss a topic that can be difficult to approach.
|Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource
The design and layout is very simplistic, the same could be attained from using a book or simply having a discussion around the questions raised without the need for this visual aid. There is not much content, which although ideal for this age, it may not be engaging enough to be considered worthwhile. The design is quite plain and use of color is minimal.
|Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource
Including more visually appealing focus points – more images to convey ideas rather than text. Also the use of video and sound would be more engaging.
