|Who should this digital teaching resource be used with?
This resource is for use with Year 1 students.
|How should it be used?
This interactive learning tool enables the teacher to create a lesson that involves both group learning and individual participation. Each student will have access to the program and be required to complete a series of activities on their personal devices.
|Which subject or learning area would it be most appropriate to use in?
This resource is used in an art/drawing lesson plan. The interaction allows students to refine their motor skills, have some fun when drawing with the mouse and allows them to work autonomously.
|Identify the strengths of this teaching resource
This is an easy to use program that young students would become comfortable in using after minimal instruction. Limited functionality is a strength because students are less likely to become overwhelmed or distracted by a complex range of options and can focus on the lesson content. The resource also has the option to download the finished work for students to save or print.
|Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource
This resource is best suited to students in the initial years of schooling and is therefore not transferable to older students who have attained a satisfactory level of digital fluency. Due to the interactive nature of this resource educators may have limited control over the content produced by individual students.
Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource
This resource would be readily adaptable across all subject areas of early learning. As students become more familiar with the program teachers may encourage them to initiate the use of the resource by themselves or with peers.
