Creative Space: The Jensen Cube - A Primary / Inclusive Education Tool
The Jensen Cube is an experimental tool aimed at teaching literacy and numeracy in a revolutionary way.
Come and meet Lars Bang Jensen one of the inventors of the tool which he describes as "an analogue maths / language learning auxiliary tool to promote inclusive primary practice".
Lars Bang Jensen is a Research Fellow in the STEM Ed. Centre and this is a STEM Education Centre based project.
He will outline how the tool works and the concepts behind it. We will then invite you to imagine how it could be applied in the local area. Together we may brainstorm the next great application of this emerging tool.
These events exist to allow community partners, students and staff to network in order to generate real-world innovative educational projects. They take a set format, in which a partner spends time introducing their particular context, the challenges they would love to solve, and the opportunities they see as currently uninterrogated The remaining session (which keeps going until we run out of steam!) is spent workshopping ideas, and drawing together proposals - which we then seek to turn into real implemented projects.
