Developing our personal identity

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Jukka Jolkkonen

Personal Identity deals with such questions as “What kinds of traits and qualities make us as we are and different from others?” Generally, personal identity is the unique identity of a person over the course of time.

This module looks at personal identity as defined in our mind and memory.

We will explore

  • Introduction to the mind, memory and links to our personal identity
  • Introduction to the Brain – our most complex organ
  • A look at memory – a complex process
  • Group and individual memory exercises
  • Is our memory the same as other animals?


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans – KS3 and KS4
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
