Second, learners get the point more quickly when you use VIPs. Learners can literally see what you mean” in a way that without VIPs they cant. (This is what I meant when I said they enhance the effectiveness of instruction)

Thirdly they are easy to adapt which means it’s easy for you to differentiate for differing abilities. Simply add more or less content to the VIP depending on the ability of the learners.

The presentations will take you through, in step-by-step detail, how to use VIPs
