Collaborating, sharing, and building were the key themes of the two week Design Camp that was held at MIT from August 3-10, 2015. Designed to be interactive, the Camp was structured to have a workshop format. CLIx participants from India worked with teams at MIT in a manner that truly reflected MIT’s spirit of Mens et Manus.
The curriculum development process involves piloting the offerings at various stages of development to enable iterative feedback and formative evaluation of the design. The first such endeavour attempted by CLIx was the i2C pilot in Telangana and Rajasthan schools, in 2015. This has offered rich learning not only for the i2C team but for the other CLIx curricular teams as well. Through this process we were able to identify the need to distinguish technological, pedagogical and content elements, in order to to separately evaluate each aspect. At the same time, when we analysed their inter-relationships, the design aspects to be considered for implementation at scale became clearly visible.
