2019 Setup Begins
I've been into school a few times already this week slowly working at setting up the space I'm going to be working in this year. The plan is to provide a specialist CRT program for every class in the school based around the new Computational Thinking and Designing and Developing Digital Outcomes areas of the Technology curriculum.
I'll also be looking at improving student's awareness of digital citizenship and providing a few experiences that will help to ensure students have a base level understanding of how to use a few digital tools. While developing their curiosity using a Maker mindset and of course throwing in some STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths). So nothing too major... I'm kidding I know that's a mammoth amount of work.
These are all areas of learning I'm passionate about and I'm super keen to share that passion with students and teachers over the coming term. It'll be interesting to see how things develop and I'll attempt to document what happens - things that work, what doesn't work, what I'm changing and what I'm looking at doing next.
So far I have in the space I have ...
It's not looking too bad so far, still a way to go yet with a few titles to go on the walls and a bit more tidying of the extra bits that are hanging around. I'll try and post a few more photos once it's ready to go.
Until then check out our site - I've named it the Exploration Station - just trying this name out at the moment it might change later...
We will also have a blog, you can view the beginnings of it here....
