|Identify the strengths of this teaching resource
Popplet is a user-friendly program that allows users to generate visually engaging presentations that incorporate text and visual images. This functionality allows content to be presented in an easy to follow pattern, allowing students to learn via teacher explanation and then reinforce their learnings via practical exercise. The program allows any combination of images and text to be imported to support the desired learning outcomes.
|Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource
Popplet has limited functionality which restricts students’ ability to directly interact with the onscreen content. While presenting the lesson in a digital form, the program does not provide students with any additional learning about digital technology. For the lesson to be effective in engaging the students, complementary hard copy resources are essential.
|Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource
This resource is readily adaptable to all levels of primary school education and across all subject areas. In particular the program’s structure allows the creation of a process flow diagram that could be applied to a wide range of subject matters that involve a step-by-step learning process.
