A promising resource - works well with BTEC students with access to software packages. Good fun. Students could produce the CD cover and then the rest of the class could guess who they are from the CD cover
I work in China with ESL children. I wanted something that was engaging and developed their language. I gave them this resource and they had a few days in between to design. It was amazing what they presented. Some drew, designed using the computer and one sang and recorded and then presented. The students enjoying presenting a CD about themselves.
