A tactile way of learning
We had tonnes of fun with the kids creating our own version of The Connected World using pins and multicoloured strings to connect everything together.
The focus of running this workshop is to break down how video conferencing works at its simplest form. To do this we present a hands on activity where the kids get to play with laminated objects such as servers, networks, cables, islands and people! We take this approach to get the kids to an understanding of the everyday technology they use but one that it works in almost an invisible way.
Best part was seeing the smile on the kids faces once the Connected World board was finished and got hung up on the wall for all of us to admire. Their feedback? One kid put it really well… It’s a beautiful mess!
