Family Creative Learning
Date posted: August 7, 2018
Family Creative Learning is a workshop series that engages children and their parents to learn together, using creative technologies. The workshops are designed to build on families’ relationships and cultural backgrounds and to strengthen their social support and skill around computing.
Children and their parents engage in design-based activities using creative technologies like Scratch and MaKey MaKey. Families learn to support one another in their learning through asking questions, giving feedback, and working through challenges together. There is also the opportunity to connect with other families.
Parents and children become learning partners and use their literacy and learning skills in the context of computing. To learn more, visit the Family Creative Learning website. For a basic framework to implement the five workshops, download the Family Creative Learning Facilitator Guide.
