- How to work with ESI
The ESI-site may be used in various ways. Students may work in small
groups, pairs or individually while exploring the material. The
experiments and simulations can also be used by the teacher for class
Depending on teaching and learning methods used, it takes in between
30-60 minutes to work through each activity. All activities start with
an introduction to the content where students are asked to investigate
and explore some specific issues guided by both general and specific
questions. For those who would like to deepen their knowledge in the
subject, we recommend progressive work through the entire site,
starting with activity one and finishing with the last.
In some activities there is an emphasis on text-based information and
in some activities there is an emphasis on animations, simulations and
experiments. A number of video clips within the site provide the
learner with authentic film material on various subjects.
The material was developed for use in high-school/gymnasium classes.
Still, a lot of it might surely be of great interest for students at
other school levels! In "how to use ESI" (on the menu to the left)
there are teacher guides and an outline with the objective and the
content of each activity.
