Using the screens

There is no fixed way of using My World screens. They are designed to provide the user with an environment to explore. The real educational value often lies in the explanations users give for the ways in which they are using the screens.

It follows that assigning screens to age ranges and curriculum areas is often of little value. The same screen may be approached in very different ways by users of different ages and abilities.

The following table should therefore be regarded as giving outline guidance only. NB all these screens involve the use of IT.

Accompanying text

Each interactive My World screen appears in a web page which also contains explanation, ideas or instructions. The language level of the text is as far as possible compatible with the level of the My World screen.

There is of course nothing to stop users, teachers and parents devising other sets of instructions to accompany the screens - don't feel restricted by our ideas!

Customising the site

This site attempts to address a wide age and curriculum spread. Individual children are likely to find particular screens useful and fun to use. To make it easy to reach these directly, you may want to use the browser's 'Favourites' or 'Bookmarks' option to create shortcuts to these screens.

Once a shortcut is set up, simply clicking on it will connect the computer to the internet and load the page, without going through the opening screens and menus.

Please note that you will still require the username and password to access these screens.
