Authentic contexts

I might be a bit late to this party, but really enjoying the authentic integration of the Technology strands and Digital Technology learning areas (CT and DDDO) in these lesson sequences from Digital Ignition | Māpura Matihiko.

For example, Think like a Tech Creator for Year 8's walks teachers through a series of lessons that encourage students to develop computational thinking skills while designing and developing digital outcomes (apps, sensors, websites, pick-a-path stories) in response to local/identified needs, for example the Rena oil spill. Rich examples of cross-curricula planning (NZC) modelled here as well.

The resources used for stimulation are equally compelling.

Has anyone used these resources or engaged in the workshops with your students? Love to hear more. smiley
