From Talent To Learning
In TechLit computer classes we have many different specialties designed to help students discover their unique interests and use them to develop digital skills through project-based learning. Two of the specialties that we have are Graphic Design and Coding.
Finding Unique Interests
Peter is a Grade 6, Group B student at Barrina primary school. Since we introduced him to Inkscape, our vector graphics editor, in Graphic Design class, he emerged as a talented artist. During one of his Graphic Design lessons, he drew a very colorful lorry. And then all of the next school term, he insisted that I show him block coding so that he could animate his colorful lorry.
I decided to call him during break time to teach him the basics of block coding. I am so impressed and motivated as a tutor to get such a young person's needs and to be able to teach them new things every day.
