National Digital Learning Week 2018 #NDLW18

Tech Toys and Tinkering

All this week pupils in primary 6 have been applying their digital skills and knowledge to explain the impact of rights and the Rights Respecting Schools Award at Busby Primary.

Our class Article was #12: the right to be listened to and taken seriously.

P6 have undertaken this by designing a series of lessons for the Early Years pupils involving a range of technology. With the message: “I know it, I can show it” the pupils have delivered lessons to introduce the pupils in Nursery to Sphero (a codable, remote control pingpong ball), Codarpillar (similar to a bee-bot) and some ‘mobile phone’ walkie-talkies.

They had to plan, deliver and assess a range of activities but mostly involving directional language, which is so important to children as they learn about coding for digital literacy. The pupils have certainly had their say and been listened to; in fact, more and more often we can see that the pupils are very much the experts of digital literacy.
