USING TECHNOLOGY TO ENHANCE STUDENT LEARNING
Bright Sparks is an extension program that offers short courses for students in Grades 3-6. The purpose of this program is to use technology to engage and enrich student learning.
The courses that are being run at the moment are:
We see multimedia used everywhere – on TV, mobile devices and billboards. It is used to entertain, inform influence and persuade us. The more creative they are, the more they grab our attention. Have you ever thought of how they are created? Would you like to be involved in designing your own?
This course will give you the skills needed to create your own multimedia product. You will learn how to film alongside a green screen, capture photos with filters and edit them using computer software, and compose musical sound tracks. If you enjoy being creative and want to express it using multimedia then this is the course for you!
Robotics is fascinating and the possibilities of what they can do is mind boggling. Have you ever wanted to make your own robot?
This course we will be using LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 sets to create and command robots that walk, talk, think and do anything you can imagine.
There are four sessions in each course and each session runs for one and a half hours.
