This research study explores the use of different teaching resources in an Art classroom, investigating which resources are found the most beneficial by pupils across a series of lessons. A qualitative research methodology was implemented for this study and included students and a teacher. The key findings indicate pupils prefer more visually engaging and interactive presentations during a lesson and those pupils still find an in-class demonstration or teacher exemplar the most helpful form of teaching resource. Pupils find books the least helpful form of teaching resource. It was identified that pupils want more tablet based learning and downloadable presentations for their tablets before, during and after lesson.
