Teacher comment

In this activity, my goal was to make learners learn both the prepositions and the names of the specific places. The activity also aims to help them learn the directions.

Learner comments

Matematikci olarak sözel dil eÄŸitimi gibi egitime antipatim vardi ancak böyle bir eÄŸitim sekli ile daha aktif olduguna inanıyorum. Ogrenci merkezli egitim sistemde ÖÄŸrenci açısından bakildiginda sinifa hareket katmak cok onemli bu interaktif tahta bunu cok açık sekilde ortaya koyuyor.
