CREATIVE IDEAS

Instructor : Assist Prof. Dr. Aykut KALAYCIOĞLU
Age: 10-12 Years
Education Period: 14 Weeks ( Per Week 1 Day)

Creative Ideas is, developed for the children of 10-12 age group, aims children develop awareness of everyday technology that surrounds our lives, and to promote the use of technology for production purposes, not for consumption.

In the scope of project, starting with children in the production of electricity, given practical training about signals, the receivertransmitter pair, and the sensors. Basic knowledge of technology, everyday life and children is associated with nature, with the information they receive training in basic electronic circuits as a result of consolidation they find technological solutions to problems observed in everyday lives.

Technological concepts are being taught as a play with the support of drama taking into account the developmental characteristics of children and technology related to the program based on age groups, first each subject introduced with play, and then given concrete form with information and examples of everyday life and to be used in solving the problems in our lives in accordance with field studies.

Creative Ideas, to be implemented as a one day a week program for a total of 15 weeks in fall and spring semesters and each weekday for a total of 15 days in winter and summer periods.
