Evaluation of an Online Multimedia, Teaching and Learning Resource: Allsorts Primary School
Wood, Ruth; Cumpson, Ian; French, Fiona
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v11 n3 p333-346 2003
As part of the EFFECTS award (Effective Framework for Embedding Communications and Information Technology using Targeted Support), the necessity of evaluating the use of Information and Communications Technology (I&CT) in teaching and learning was reinforced and, as a result, the following study has been produced. This formative evaluation reflects upon the design of Allsorts Primary School, an interactive multimedia on-line resource, by analysing the responses gathered from a sample of teacher trainees identified as the intended users. The evaluation used a combination of questionnaire and focus group discussion, both of which required the trainees involved to reflect upon their personal experience of Allsorts Primary School. The responses from the trainees indicated that they viewed their experiences of the virtual primary school as enjoyable and effective in developing their understanding of the complex issues surrounding the implementation and development of ICT within the primary context.
