This is one of sixteen elearning resources published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE).
This 2008 package comprises nine interactive modules by James Blewett, Anna Gupta & Jane Tunstill. They look at the key aspects of poverty, parenting and social exclusion with particular reference to children and families. The resources are designed for social work students and practitioners, but will also be valuable to others working with children and families.
Each of the nine modules is about 20-30 minutes long. They include glossaries, references, transcripts, learning records and links to extra resources. Adobe Flash Player is required on your computer.
The incorporation of simulations, quizzes, commentaries, audio and video clips makes these interactive modules very attractive, and as a teacher I found the accompanying pdf Educators Guide really useful.
