PBL - Designing Tools to Teach Preschool Skills

This term our focus for Problem Based Learning is to use our knowledge of the Technology Design Process, along with knowledge of preschool skills, creativity and their imaginations to design a 'tool' for teaching preschool aged children something new. This week we began the process by interviewing a range of experts, such as Ms Fidow,  Mrs Clarkson, learners in Te Kete Kakano and the children and staff of Blossoms preschool to find out what skills they thought it was important to develop before starting skills. We also looked at the tools that captured the attention of  the children; what colour they were, what type of tool they were, and how the learners interacted with them. From here learners will start to come up with their ideas and the designs. We look forward to seeing what comes out during the planning stage.
