Xerte object designed for interactive class work rather than individual online use.

This resource introduces different perspectives on the same event to stimulate class discussion. After that, learners submit their own experiences via an embedded Google Form in the learning object (this can be done from their mobile phones or from laptops). While the learners were engaged in other tasks later in the lesson I added their experiences into an interactive connector page which they then used for homework to do an assignment based on their joint experiences.

  • How this LO add value for my learners?: This stimulated discussion and got them thinking widely about the issues. They then reflected on how these type of events had personally affected them. They were able to examine their experiences in relation to the experiences of other learners in order to reflect on the difference between an extreme event and a human vulnerability.
