Level of interaction

  • The students will interact with this resource at a number of levels.
  • At a physical/tactile level, the student will control the pace of the lesson and the degree of repetition required.
  • The student engages both visual and auditory modalities while learning.
  • Having engaged the tactile, visual and auditory senses, the student is now strongly disposed to accommodate and assimilate new information and understanding.
  • The student engages cognitively thus learning how to approach questions/problems and break solution procedures down into logical steps.
  • The student can then retrace the steps taken and thus see solving the problem as a logical procedure progressing from problem to solution.
