This is a STEM (Integrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) course, during which teachers will be introduced to the basic concepts of electronics and how to apply them to textile based design projects. The course will include an introduction to electronics theory, identification of simple components, developing circuits using ICTs and applying that knowledge to simple skill development projects.
Participants will engage in discussion regarding project based learning, its application in the classroom and how to develop appropriate assessment methodologies.
This workshop is a basic introduction to the fun world of e-Textiles.
The workshop will include a kit of components that contains enough components to enable further experimentation after the course. This course is designed to help the absolute beginner get going
with e-Textiles. Targeted concepts are Project Based Learning, Design Thinking, Computational and Algorithmic thinking and Integrated Learning. STEM skills are identified as being crucial to Australia’s prosperous future.
