Methods of Delivery
METHODS OF DELIVERY
We try to ensure that as much of our delivery is as interactive as possible, since feedback from young people indicates that they gain the most from such activities. Many of these activities take the form of quizzes and games, in which young people can either work individually, in pairs or in teams. With the use of an interactive programme, we can address several learning styles and modalities, providing a rich variety of instructional approaches which can educate in the methods that students learn best. Group work and interactive materials also motivate student interaction and cooperative learning.
In the DVD that was produced, we try to tackle the issue of homelessness by showing actors converying people's experiences of this. By taking this approach, we aim to destigmatise the issue of homelessness by showing individuals whose experiences do not necessarily correspond with the stereotypical image that many people have of homelessness. Young people are generally known to enjoy the experience of multimedia and many often respond far more positively to multimedia based learning.

They really learned from the games/activities, so any more of them
would be great. But mostly the present format appears to work well.
