Six Steps To School Program Success: Step 3 Student Resources

WARNING => Please don’t edit this block

Number 3 in our six steps to creating an awesome school program is how to develop engaging student resources that deliver your key message to the classroom. A good student resource is a blend of engaging learning opportunities and discussion about the key topics.

Make it interactive

Growing up in a digital savvy era, the students in our classroom today are used to consuming digital content across a range of technology. Typically wanting short attention windows, our research suggests that students want tools and online resources  that offer a high level of interactivity. However,  creating a digital interactive resource that is functional across the range of devices and browsers that exist within the school environment can be tricky. There is nothing that will turn a teacher off of using your resources faster than an interactive digital resource that won’t function on the browser they using.

Mix online and offline

Whilst interactive digital resources are a big hit with students, a good mix of offline and online activities,provide the perfect balance for a great learning experience. An opportunity for the students to work in groups or use their hands to create something tangible breaks up the screen time and provides a great opportunity to start a conversation about what they are learning.

Guage the learning

Teachers are always looking for ways to assess their students’ learning.  A fun way to do measure this learning is with a pre and post knowledge test. Start the student activity with a pre learning quiz to get a benchmark of what the class already knows and then end the student activity with a post quiz that assesses their comprehension of  the key concepts explored. Make the quizzes fun and interactive and the teachers will love them as much as the students.
