PYP Exhibition - Creative Element Workshops
How are students demonstrating their new knowledge gained through a creative element for the Exhibition?
Creative Element Workshops
During the last week of Exhibition, 15 teachers led workshops daily with a focus on the design process for the students creative elements. Workshops were led in 2D/3D artwork, app design, websites, prototypes, boardgames, infographics, posters, videos, creative & informative writing, storybook creating, science experiments & reports, speeches, podcasts and creative dance. Students focussed on how they were going to demonstrate their research and knowledge gained through these pieces, skill development to create an effective element and shared their pieces with each other to gain feedback and further suggestions in order to enhance their piece.
