These sessions will help your students develop many of the digital skills outlined in the Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko strands of the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.
For instance, a coding session will help develop confidence in computational and algorithmic thinking, as we use child-friendly, block-based programming tools to develop programming language skills.
With our more visual topics such as 3D printing and graphic design, we dabble in design thinking and develop awareness of using visual communication to conceptualise and develop ideas.
All of our topics aim to grow students’ knowledge of how technology relates to the real world. Often we’ll focus on creating innovative and feasible outcomes to resolve current and future-focused real world issues.
The Mind Lab sessions aim to enhance students’ understanding of the three strands of technology: technological practice, technological knowledge and the nature of technology.
