Each term, T4L provides online resources that have some great tech solutions for the classroom.
T4L Kids magazine is a self-guided independent learning resource created by teachers for students, for class or home. The aim is to provide students with purposeful challenges that engage them in creating content and enhance their problem-solving skills using technology.
In the latest issue students are invited to take the challenge to design, then develop an app for a real-life client, like Transport for NSW. With a guided video brief from their potential client, students will prototype a transport app and take it further by developing it into a real-life app.
More advanced students can code their apps and bring them to life. This challenge comes with guided student resources around app design, inclusive design and tools for coding. They’ll have everything they need to get started on their app adventure.
This app design challenge offers a real-world problem and asks students to find a real-world solution and supports design thinking and computational thinking skills.
