Design-based learning at Eleebana

Kindergarten and Stage 2 students from Eleebana Public School have once again been working together on design tasks as part of a project-based learning approach to curriculum differentiation. During this iteration of the project, children are challenged to build, create, test and evaluate their ideas.

These design-based projects allow students to learn what they need to learn in a just-in-time fashion while trying to design something.

This year, the project includes range of design tasks:

  • Beebot homes: where each home includes an upper level, an up-ramp and a large undercover living space
  • Beebot board games: student-created board games to reinforce spelling, reading and number skills
  • Online computer games: student-designed Scratch games for Kindergarten children designed by Stage 2 students
