Year 5 and 6 children had a fantastic opportunity to work collaboratively during a “tech” workshop. The children taught each other how to design and create their own apps, explore new software J2E, and complete computer coding and physical coding activities. The children were able to up skill each other using technology to promote 21st century learning. Great job Dosbarth Bedwen a Dosbarth Derw.
