Today I made further progression on my concept design, adding in what I have termed the “wall of connection”. The “wall of connection” is there for two reasons. Firstly, it acts a digital portal through which students will be able to engage with other students in other schools and even other countries. Now more than ever I believe that we need to look a bit ‘wider’ to crack our bigger problems, and the early we install acceptance and the importance of celebrating differences into in our young people, the better. I also hope that it will serve as a collaborative wall through which students can make art with their peers and experience of the joy of technology in a way that fosters skills that allows them to learn the skills that will allow them to thrive in the future.
