A junior science class demonstrates a lesson about multicelular organisms using glove puppets with a constructivist approach to problem solving and a blended learning model. This activity has even been adapted by the teacher Roland Gesthuizen to help explore complex topics including technology issues such as cyberbullying, privacy, programming, copyright, freedom and ethical behaviour whilst improving their literacy and social skills. This is a very engaging way to quickly assess student understanding using some simple technology and computer skills without the need for sophisticated digital equipment.
