    Students loved this resource! Some of my kids work at McDonald’s so they could personally see relevance and it started a meaningful discussion about production facilities in all my student’s workplaces.

    Excellent resource! I purchased and used this resource as we were running out of time to teach this aspect of FPD. The students who were absent due to Covid-19 lockdown were able to access the resource easily. I turned the written component into booklets with the Part 1 and 2 resource which they used as study notes for the HSC.

    Very good. However some sections of the videos were a little long and slightly off topic. Students have asked in future I just show the slides and discuss. However in saying that I do personally like the idea of narrated slides. Could be a bit quicker and to the point.
