Learner Journey Studying Scotland through Technology Scottish Inventors: Early Level
Studying Scotland through Technology Learner Journey: Scottish Inventors Overview • Possible prior experiences • Learners will know what an inventor does. • Learners will have experience of using inventions e.g TV and raincoat • Learners will have created models during other activities/ areas for study. • Learning through lead curriculum area: Technology • Inventions are designed for a specific purpose. • Specific inventions come from Scotland. • Anyone can be an inventor. • Inventors make, create and design. • Skills developed • Working with others • Creating • Problem Solving • Communicating • Interdisciplinary Opportunities • Literacy across learning • Mathematics • Social Subjects • Expressive Arts
Learning Opportunity A: Scottish Inventors Trigger for Learning During imaginative play learners are pretending to be on TV when Early Years practitioner explains that there was once a time when there was no such thing as TV. This leads to discussion around Scottish inventors; particularly John Logie Baird. Possible Learning Opportunity Learners create a mind map (using pictures) to establish what they know about TV and why it was important. Stimulus questions: Why do we have TV? Who invented the TV? What would it be like if there was no TV? • Learning • John Logie Baird invented the TV. • He was from Helensburgh in Scotland. • He lived a long time ago. • Skills • Communicating Possible Evidence of Learning: Quotes from the children, Mind map, photos with annotations.
Learning Opportunity B: Scottish Inventors Trigger for Learning One learner looks at the photo of John Logie Baird and asks why the photo of him “doesn’t have any colours” This leads to teacher talking about time and where we are in terms of time. Possible Learning Opportunity Learners create a simple timeline containing the years they were born, the years their parents were born, the year their grandparents were born and their great grandparents, then place TV invention in relation to this simple timeline. (They may even have pictures of what the TV looked like in those years.) • Learning • People have a place in time. • Inventions have a place in time. • They live just now, but John Logie Baird lived a long time ago. Possible evidence of Learning: Annotated photographs, quotes from the children, timeline. • Skills • Problem solving • Communicating. • Working with others
Learning Opportunity C: Scottish Inventors Trigger for Learning One learner asks another child to pass him a square, but the other learner passes him a cube. This leads to discussion about 3D shape. Possible Learning Opportunity Early years practitioner works with small groups to learn about cubes, spheres, cuboids and cylinders. A variety of learning experiences would be included e.g. shape hunt indoors and out, feely bag, looking at pictures, sorting activities. • Learning • 3D shape • Simple attributes and characteristics of 3D shape. • Skills • Problem solving • Investigating • Remembering Possible Evidence of Learning: Learners quotes, usage of the shapes in their models, being able to describe the shape.
