The content package for interactive whiteboards can be used at the primary school level as well as in secondary schools. In the case of interactive media, an appropriate labeling mode (simple or complex) can be selected according to the target group (primary school or secondary school).
With the other media, the target group is explicitly defined.

The content package consists of the following media:
• 4 images: One photo of an ear, one image for discussion and two unlabeled graphics, one for the entire ear and one for the entire ear and the brain
