It’s been thrilling discovering how much material is available on the web. KhanAcademy of course is fantastic for really explaining math to these dear kids who came from such disadvantaged backgrounds.
We’ve been very pleased to find so much material available on youtube on Systems such as the Digestive, Respiratory, Circulatory. They are so much clearer when you move from chalk on a blackboard, to animated graphics, movie clips and photos. Material on subjects from magnets to volcanoes is really filling in the lack of background of these dear students and it’s all been very heart-warming.
Reviewing what they’d gone over from their text books in class with this medium, seems to have helped subjects come to life and the principles and terms are really starting to ‘click’ through this far more visual, more easy-to-remember medium.
