Learning how to learn is a lifelong skill and fundamental to all aspects of education but it is also a complex process impacted upon by the relationships between learners and what they are learning, and the relationships between learners and their attitudes towards technology. However, in the quest for technology to be seamless, integrated, and ubiquitous in our classrooms, are we missing the opportunity to play and discover how things work? To think critically, creatively and outside the box? And do we want our learners to be passive or active creators of knowledge? As increasing criticism is directed at schools for killing cultures of creativity and innovation, why not challenge your assumptions about what you think creativity and innovation look like and join us for a spot of tinkering. When you allow learners to tinker you empower them to take control and learning how to learn becomes something which is joyful, obvious, audible, inclusive and addictive.
The session will be fully hands-on and model how MaKey MaKey can be introduced to learners, and how projects can be developed regardless of how confident and competent participants might feel in their own tinkering ability.
