Bringing the power of physical computing to education, providing a transformative maker-centered learning experience & empowering students to become collaborative, critical and creative thinkers.
Constructionism - powered by pi‑top. pi‑top's unique physical computing and ecosystem 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 collaborative problem solving.
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, and across the curriculum.
Collaborative problem‑solving sits at the intersection of non‑routine problem‑solving and social intelligence. At its simplest level, it is about 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 need to trust and collaborate with other people. The pi‑top platform 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 an example, testing it, seeing what happens, revising it, iterating based on what happens. Project‑based learning is learner‑centred and social, developing critical and creative thinking skills and collaboration. The pi‑top maker platform is designed to fire the imagination of learners and teachers alike.
