faezams's curator insight, March 29, 2014 8:49 PM

This a great blog by John Miller (2013) which provides ideas relating to how technology can be used to engage in aspects of Asian history. As an example of active learning, the project out lined enhances creative thinking and  develops problem solving skills. To create this mine craft version of the Tang Dynasty capital city, students would be engaged in meeting the Technologies Curriculum aim of investigating, designing, planning, managing and creating solutions (ACARA, 2014).

 

Aimed at middle primary, this project enhances computational thinking (ACARA, 2014) by providing an opportunity to understand how the digital tools of today can assist in solving problems of the future (ISTE, 2012). This project relates digital thinking to concepts in the primary classroom and in the process engages the students in an active mode of learning, raises the level of achievement, prepares the students for global competitiveness by increasing their technological literacy and blends academics with real life (ISTE, 2012).
