Developing Multimedia Electronic Resources for Secondary Classroom Students, UK

Will Griffiths, Panos Seranis.

This workshop demonstrates the results of a major DfES (Department for Education and Skills, UK) trial to create an ICT-based course for a KS3 (students 12-14 years old) subject, in which there is a shortage of specialist teachers.
The KS3 Latin Project has been successfully trialled over the last 4 years and the electronic resources produced are going to be available to all state schools in the UK from September 2003.
Over a thousand electronic activities in a variety of media (web, interactive, video and audio) have been created and are further arranged into 5 different courses which amount to schemes of work and lesson plans to suit a variety of user groups. During the workshop there will be a demonstration of the resources (20 mins), opportunities for delegates to use them (25 mins) and finally a plenary discussion to address implementation issues in the classroom.

This workshop is linked to Dr Seranis' paper on Key Factors for Effective Online Language Learning.
