The objective of the project was to educate young people about social issues, including drug and alcohol abuse, bullying and sexual health in an interesting and engaging way.
After a simple setup and installation of Classcomm 5 software, the youth workers from Barnados loaded their Powerpoint presentations, along with questions to assess how the young people related to the topic being discussed and how much they were learning. Instead of using standard paper evaluation forms, the workers were able to simply create slides on Powerpoint which asked the relevant questions. The young people were then able to use the Pebble response system to answer questions and interact with the assessor.
The results are calculated by the software and stored for later evaluation.
