Modelling learning using a visualiser

In this video, Lewis Angier, Teacher at Fulbridge Academy (primary), demonstrates how he makes use of a visualiser during lessons to support his presentation, explanation and modelling of new learning.

If you’ve chosen to watch this case study, consider what it reveals about the importance of purposeful use of education technologies. Click next at the bottom of the page to skip to the next case study if you’ve chosen to focus on a different one this week.
A visualiser can be attached to a computer and projector in the classroom to display a close-up view of something such as a piece of work or a demonstration. Lewis uses the visualiser in this case study to demonstrate the steps of a science experiment to his pupils. He explains the steps one at a time and uses the visualiser to provide clear instructions before releasing the pupils to engage with each step at a time so as not to overload their working memory. You’ll learn more about these approaches in Week 2 of the course.
