What happens when you give nearly 200 primary school children the freedom of a floor of Tate for two days? Creativity, learning and fun!
In this podcast Sarah Horrocks, London Connected Learning Centre’s co-director, and Caitlin McMillan, a London CLC teaching and learning consultant, discuss the annual Tate Exchange programme, in which a floor of the famous London gallery is given over to Tate Exchange associates to curate.
As long-standing Tate Exchange associates, in February we worked with 170 pupils from 20 schools to deliver our Making Moves workshop. Activities included digital sound manipulation, robot programming, animation, film and puppetry.
Hear in the podcast from children and their teachers about the experience and their highlights.
Sarah and Caitlin also look ahead to next February’s Tate Exchange project, which will involve not only London primary schoolchildren but also children from Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark as part of the Co-Think Erasmus project. Together they will explore concepts of power, next year’s theme, through art and making, both digital and analogue.
This podcast also rounds up some of London CLC’s exciting CPD opportunities on offer to teachers this term, from a special project with First News to our ever-popular Primary Computing Conference.
