The 21st-Century Classroom Experiences (21CCE) is the best way to learn about Creative Technology and Sustainability in the classroom.
The core of 21CCE are different kits with Strawbees building materials, electronics and accompanying lessons with video instructions. All kits provide a fun, hands-on learning experience starting in Construction, but also focuses on developing Programming skills, Creativity, Collaboration, and Communication skills between students.
The 21CCE are created with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in mind, and with a methodology that lets students develop the PISA Global Competence. We made sure to keep a strong curricular relevance and clear instructions for the students, to make life easier for teachers. The 21CCE is a starting point for a practical and deeper learning about technology and its role in society.
