Evaluating activities

Evaluation of activities

Now that we’ve shown you some of our favourite lab kits, computer activities and paper-based resources, it’s time to work out exactly how you might implement this in the classroom.

Using the examples from the previous three videos (Matt King’s kit recommendations; Function Finders; Copy That!), or another activity of your choosing, we’d like you to evaluate how and why you would use the resource in your own teaching. What do you like about the activity, what concepts do you think it might help your students understand, what age group would you use it with?
