ICT Park Design: “How We Organize Ourselves”

For the unit, “How We Organize Ourselves”, students are studying how citizens have responsibilities to fulfill to ensure their communities are safe an happy.

The ICT integration for this unit involves taking a look at how and why parks are important public spaces in a community.  The students had a chance to look at photos of different parks from around the world and to discuss how they are uniquely suited to the communities and environments in which they are located.

One resources for this is an interactive on line resource called Giver from tvokids.com

After exploring different parks, students had the opportunity to design their own community park using the online park builder programme from Giver.

Below are some student samples
