EUN206 Design and Technologies

This six-week unit will develop your knowledge of the “Technologies” Learning Area of the Australian Curriculum and the associated pedagogy required to teach this in primary and early childhood settings. You will learn how to develop design thinking and computational thinking in your future students, which enable them to create designed  solutions that address authentic problems and opportunities.  Learning activities in the unit are based upon constructivist learning theories and focus strongly on hands-on engagement that lead to solutions in response to real world design challenges. The unit makes explicit connections with some of the concepts and ideas that you developed in mathematics, science and the digital literacies unit (EUN101 Supporting Innovative Pedagogy with Digital Technologies).
