We’ve partnered with Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) to launch this Young Innovator Education pack because we share the same beliefs about young people – beliefs we’re certain many of you reading this believe, too.
The decisions and innovations of young people map out the future. They ARE the future. Their brilliant, enquiring, creative minds are the minds that will steer the next wave of innovation; the wave of change.
As teachers, you don’t need us to tell you that such minds need nurturing, but what’s really important is that they know they can start innovating – start making changes – right now. They may be the minds of the future, but they’re also the fresh minds of today.
This Education Pack is about encouraging KS2 and KS3 students to identify problems (big or small) and to use innovation to solve those problems; establishing the building blocks behind the brains that will shape the future.
The education pack includes:
- three case studies of TCS innovations that have gone on to help older people/those in need
- an interview with the CEO of Age UK Camden, Nikki Morris to help students identify the immediate needs of the elderly
- activities to develop students’ understanding of the innovation process
The TCS Digital Innovators Education Pack is intended to help students focus their innovation ideas, and to enable teachers to integrate the competition into Computing, PSHE or DT lessons. It is suitable for KS2 and KS3.
