Technology in Play work in partnership with schools to support in providing coding and computational thinking to primary aged children in education. These take place as fully managed after school activities hosted exclusively for children attending those schools. If you would like to discuss hosting a TiP@School please contact your local team at the location links above.
Our tech toys introduce coding, develop computational thinking, problem solving skills and creative thinking all without the overuse of screens. Through interactive play and storytelling, we introduce children to a tangible programming language using algorithms and debugging.
The tools we use offer great cross-curricular application. Children develop communication and increase in confidence as we remove ‘wrong’ outcomes and encourage experimentation. Coding also uses a range of mathematic skills as children will add and subtract within a sequence and discuss angles, shapes, position and distance. Most importantly, our tech toys ignite imagination as we transform them into characters in our own stories and send them on their own unique adventure.
At Technology in Play we understand the importance of the A in STEAM. Allowing space for art in this programme encourages and develops children’s creativity and innovation. This project will allow pupils to take ownership of their work, think outside the box and showcase their learning. When children apply their knowledge in this way they learn to create with technology moving beyond following instruction to learn.
