LOOK THINK TECHNOLOGY
WEDNESDAYS | 10.30AM - 12.30PM
LOOK THINK TECHNOLOGY provides opportunities for students aged 6-9 to learn through hands on creative activities in either robotics, computer programming, electronics, or Science. Combining a range of curriculum areas such as Science, Technology, English, Art, Maths and, Digital media these workshops encourage younger children to become reflective learners, take risks and to question. We want all children to have an opportunity to learn in a fun hands on way. Hands on learning provides children with a better ability to engage in the subject they are learning. Children have a better ability to recount concepts more easily when they are doing. LOOK THINK TECHNOLOGY fosters problem based learning to encourage students to work together creatively. Each week’s class will begin with a group discussion of the investigation, supported by works on display and reference images, while also thinking about the design process. Each week will conclude with a round table discussion and sharing of reflection. All materials will be supplied.
All materials included.
