PUPILS at Meiklemill Primary found themselves the testing panel for a group of Banff and Buchan College students last week, as they tried out software developed by multimedia students at the college.

The P7 pupils visited the college to take part in the test session, which saw lecturer Alex-John Stephen assess his students on their ability to produce a multi-media CD-ROM aimed at primary school age youngsters.

Headmistress Mearlene Johnston told the Times: “Alex-John contacted the school to find out if we would be willing to help with his students’ assessment, and I said we would love to help. Our P7s visited the college, and had a brilliant time.”

Lecturer Alex-John Stephen said “I would like to thank Marlene and the children for giving the students the opportunity of testing their CD-ROM projects. Analysing the children’s interaction with the CD-ROMs is a valuable learning experience for the students. Gathered data will help them evaluate whether the results meet the criteria which were set out in the planning stages with the client, Meiklemill Primary.”
