Kids of the future
Programming, media literacy, robotics and web development are all new subjects for primary education. Nevertheless, a number of studies have already been carried out into teaching children these subjects. These studies, in combination with our own findings, have been summarised in the research report "Kids of the future".
The galactIQ team interviewed primary school teachers, conducted STEM lessons with hundreds of students and made a thorough research to elaborate this document. All the galactIQ team's findings have been translated into a helpful guide designed to support your teachers and help them deliver the subjects of the future to their pupils.
The content of this guide is divided into three age groups: 5-6, 7-9 and 10-13; each one of these chapters explain what each age already knows about technology, what they are capable of learning and how to teach them new STEM topics. Inside the 'Kids of the future" guide you will find useful facts, clear learning objectives and helpful tools to teach STEM material properly.
We know teaching media literacy, programming, robotics or web development can seem like a real challenge, but we also know that it is doable with the right knowledge and support. Some of that knowledge is already available in the "Kids of the future" report and we are sure our guide will take your school a step closer to teaching 21st century skills.
