2.1 Word wheel
Now look at this(right-click on this link to access the wheel in a new tab or window). The word wheel is part of the OU’s free Open Educational Resources. It has three toggles on the outside of the wheel allowing the user to move wheels to reveal different words in three windows, level 1 controlling the central window, level 2 the middle window and level 3 the outer window. The user can build up a set of three words. The language used in this word wheel was derived from the feedback provided by Open University students during 2014 and 2015, so it provides a set of authentic student language showing what students value in their learning. Using these words enables the OU to design an approach for our materials and to think about how to target our planning. Refer to Activity 1 in Week 2 for a reminder of the needs analysis process.
Alternatively, here is a table which shows the sets of words in a more static format:
