Y11 GCSE Physics students have been using an iBook textbook resource that I have produced using material kindly provided by Keith Gibbs, a former Priory Head of Science and my former Physics teacher here at Priory back in the day!
Students were given questions to answer and the textbook. Nothing revolutionary, but an opportunity to test out what could become a valuable tool for independent study. They found the book easy to navigate and read. They really liked the interactive glossary entries and the ability to create their own and add them to the stack of revision cards.
Their PCS skills were also tested as they found one or two errors along the way!
Next steps will be to further develop this material for students in the run in to the final Physics exam. Looking to develop interactive quizzes and other useful widgets in the next few weeks.
