Classroom Ideas

Could be used to introduce students to the role and benefits of testing procedures. The clip could be shown prior to pupils testing and evaluating products they have already made in class. Learners might be asked to list the benefits of testing procedures and identify the systems being tested in the clip. They might then be asked to identify the features of their own product that should be tested, identifying success criteria.
