At the end of each topic at Simon de Senlis, I ask for nominations to be made for the ‘Best of’ display. Usually, a selection of the children’s final outcomes are sent up to my office and I spend some time looking at the achievements of the children and making a final selection which are displayed in the entrance to school and online with the children congratulated in assembly. This is part of the process of ‘showcasing’ the final outcomes from the topics which has really helped to make children value the prototyping process and improve the standards of their work.
This term, I have chosen to use ‘Sway’, a new Microsoft technology which we have been trialling on ‘preview’ at Simon de Senlis to share these. It’s a really easy to use tool which I think frames the work brilliantly.
You can see a preview of the work below or visit the sway here.
