'Show not tell' approach
The skills students will learn in the Fiftysix Workshop are transdisciplinary and can be utilised across multiple subject areas. 'Soft Skills' are often an undervalued skill but are fundemental for success in today's innovation and digital economy.
We’ve developed a curriculum with detailed lesson plans, vetted and approved by multiple educational institutions. Our Fiftysix Workshops are in line with the Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum as well as the British Key Stage Rubric. Specific objectives can be found here.
Before school or after school
Fiftysix Creations runs before school and after school programs. By the end of the workshop period (between 5 to 8 weeks), students learn to design and develop websites, plan and present a business or social change concept and build a variety of different products including virtual reality headsets and tablet computers.
