This was a good week, the students finally downloaded the iBooks on the elements of music and on TV themes and Adverts. Having an iBook with embedded audio descriptions of the elements, discussions and analyses of themes and self assessing quizzes has definitely engaged the students more. Homeworks were of a far higher standard than last year’s paper versions, the musical descriptions were more astute and articulate.
While it’s time consuming to create these resources, the response so far has been excellent. How will January exam results differ from last year? Hopefully there’ll be a higher standard if answer from a greater number of students.
The iPad survey will have been completed by 176 students on Monday. This will help to benchmark the present now ledge and skill base.
