About

This website was created by Robert Jones for his Final Year Project in the University of Limerick, 2011, as part of the Bachelor of Technology (Education) in Materials and Engineering Technology degree.

 

This website was designed to combat the issue of students being restricted and redirected away from changing to a new subject field after the Junior Certificate, due to a lack of insight and knowledge regarding the new field, and also the shadowing apprehensive state of mind, as to whether or not they will be able to master this new subject, over the two year period, along with the embarrassment of potentially failing the unknown.

 

This website gives teachers and students of the Transition Year Programme the opportunity for teaching and learning as it presents both with a course of work and adequate resources to teach a class of varying abilities, with various motivational factors incorporated throughout the site.
