In our Primary STEAM lessons, students were challenged to teach the teacher a new tech this week (and next week).
Consequently, students have been self teaching themselves how to use a new technology (Makey Makeys) and carrying out deeper research about the tech.
They have been following their curiosity and different lines of enquiry to find out how they work and then use them to create a mini project which they will share with the teacher next week.
Enquiry and Curiosity are two of the key pillars that the NAE-MIT collaboration are trying to support and develop within our students and it was great to see so many students ask great questions and carry out collaborative research to help them present their project to a teacher.
I hope to see these students, in the future, being able to integrate this technology in meaningful ways in future school driven projects, to help present solutions to problems.
