Children as Creators not just Consumers

New today on 2Simple TV today and embedded here for you is a video from Porchester Junior School. Thanks to their teacher Simon for putting this brief clip together of kids talking about why they like 2DIY and how they use it.

Next week at BETT,  we will have some children from Cleveland Juniors and Gearies Infants talking on the Playful Learning stand about how they have collaborated on a gaming project with 2DIY.

The children in Cleveland created their own games for the infants, who acted as both an authentic ‘audience’ and as consultants. Gearies Infants children would play the games and then suggest changes and offer views on improvements via a blog and video conference. The Juniors acted on the feedback and made changes.
