The Dinosaur series of kits have been developed using the latest computer science methodology and educational pedagogies to engage all learners with computational thinking, moving them from being ‘users’ of digital tools to being ‘creators’ with digital technologies (DT).
Each kit aids the teaching of future focused skills and techniques whether in school for student-led or teacher-taught activities, or at home by children and family.
The kits use a STEM-based approach to learning and are very ‘hands on’ with student engagement deepened through the use of a practical kit that introduces and develops understanding of algorithms and an AR app that takes students to the next stage of DT understanding and knowledge with programming & AR.
The Play Code Learn Dinosaur series ‘hook’ a diverse range of children into learning with a series of fun (and cute) dinosaur characters and our hero of the kits, Explorer Ed the robot!
