Using Engineering Habits of Mind with primary trainee teachers to support children's learning in science, design and technology and computing LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

This presentation outlines how the concept of signature pedagogies was used with primary trainee teachers to develop children’s thinking skills within working scientifically, designing and making and coding. Using an engineering habits of mind (EHoM) framework (Lucas, Hanson and Claxton, 2014) trainee teachers worked with local engineers and schools to develop activities in school. Some of the creative activities planned and taught by the trainee teachers to cultivate EHoM within science, design and technology and computing will be shared. Opportunities to integrate EHoM into the primary curriculum will be actively explored in the session.
