1. About Online Classroom
Online Classroom contains both traditional learning material (found in the A4 hard copy book and ebook) and a unique e-learning learning tool. Research shows that students are much more engaged when they are presented with visually stimulating material and information that can be explored in a fun and interactive way.
Touch buttons and video clips coupled with colourful and exciting visuals compliment the traditional learning material found in the A4 hard copy book.
Online Classroom can be used:
- to plan and present your lessons;
- for class discussions;
- for group work;
- for independent learning on individual devices;
- for homework/as a research resource.
Online Classroom is a new package created by Ready-Ed Publications. It contains an A4 hard copy book, which is great for lesson planning PLUS a unique and highly graphic digital resource. Engaging your students has suddenly become simple.
