Technology has become an integral part of our daily life. Kids have the technology in their hands – teaching them to use it in a healthy way will help develop 21st century skills and transform them from consumers of technology to creators of technology.
According to research, students who used digital tools to create explanatory videos, animations, and games learned significantly more than students who created text-based materials.
Creative students are successful in developing new solutions to new emerging problems. Enhancing problem-solving skills at any early age allows them to overcome obstacles easier in the future and helps them adapt to the changing world.
The NEP 2020 has introduced coding from standard 6th onwards. It recommends that special focus should be on making students proficient in using new technologies to showcase their creativity by designing and developing solutions to real-world problems through design, making, problem solving and the interrelated disciplines of Math, Science, Engineering etc.
ICT programs deliver TechEd in schools which focuses on learning how technology works. It provides students with the opportunity to learn about the processes and knowledge related to technology that are required to solve real-world problems through engaging projects – it could be an app, website, game, or a 3D prototype.
Here are some sample project ideas that can help ICT teachers enhance creative confidence in students and empower them to become creators of technology.
Students can be given a game design project to code and design a Time Machine game – the concept of time travel by using a vehicle or a device to travel purposely and selectively forward or backward through time.
Students can be assigned an app design project to code and design a travel planner application that allows browsing through a locality, displaying nearby attractions, route planning, necessary locations, and food joints.
Students can work on a web design project where they need to code and design a website for a digitised replica of a physical museum offering virtual tours that allow users to stroll through the museum and study various items as if they are there in person.
3D Digital Design
Students can work on a 3D digital design project to create a 3D illustration for visualising the world in 2050; it can depict how we have reorganized our society to adapt to live under new climatic circumstances and use green energy to power the world in 2050.
ICT 360 in alignment with NEP, provides ICT curriculum with ready-to-use content, design and computational thinking approach to projects as well as interdisciplinary learning material on an online platform that caters to today’s relevant technologies and future skills requirements. It is designed to help teachers improve their instructional practices with 21st century teaching skills through train-the-teacher program, build a strong foundation to empower students with the ability and skills to design & create amazing things on their own in a fun & engaging environment, excel in academics and prepare them to be industry- and career-ready.
With 50+ partner schools across India, it aims to empower students with creativity, problem-solving, design and tech skills from an early age. These skills are essential for future job roles like Graphic Designers, AI & ML Specialists, Software & Applications Developers, Animators, Robotics Engineers, Data Analysts, and IOT Specialists.
