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.
Feedback from Teachers regarding interactive activities

DVD (first time viewing) was very appropriate and well-received by pupils. Positive discussion of DVD by pupils as a former pupil is in it. Very relevant topic for this class.

A Teacher from Kilwinning Academy said...
Enjoyed the part of the presentation on budgeting on a minimum wage. This gives young people an insight into the sacrifices, struggles and hardship that parents have to make for them.
