The pi-top Learning System includes all the products, curriculum content, training and support, to provide a transformative maker-centered learning experience, empowering students to become collaborative, critical and creative thinkers.
Social constructionism - powered by pi‑top. pi‑top's unique ecosystem of physical computing, coding, and project-based learning provides the ultimate learning by making platform to support teachers and learners in the development of critical, creative and computational thinking within an environment designed to encourage collaboration.
Learning the fundamentals of how a computer works and how to code is only as valuable as what you do with that knowledge and skill. The pi‑top platform encourages teachers and learners to think and make beyond the screen, solving real-world problems and making a real difference in their communities.
Collaborative problem‑solving lets learners go further together than they could on their own, leveraging the power of teamwork so each learner grows. At its simplest level, this kind of collaboration involves solving problems together, applying knowledge and discussing with others what will work best. In today's increasingly interconnected world, people are often required to collaborate in order to achieve their goals. But students still typically learn individually. Schools will need to become better at preparing students to live and work in a world in which most people will have to work productively with other people. The pi‑top Learning System is designed with this in mind.
A project‑based approach to learning isn't just responding to a particular question and giving an answer and moving on to the next question. It means coming up with an idea, playing it out, creating possible solution, testing it, seeing what happens, reflecting on what you’ve seen, and iterating your solution based on what happens. Project‑based learning is learner‑centred and social, developing critical - and analytical- thinking skills and creative-thinking skills, too. The pi‑top maker platform is designed to fire the imagination of learners and teachers alike.
