BWIST spent a thoroughly enjoyable morning with the King John’s School in Benfleet for their Industry Day. We ran three workshops with groups of about 10 students and worked with them updating a website we use for Work Experience.
The students had to make a Quiz of 10 questions and then publish this on the Work Experience website with images. The students were split into smaller Groups to undertake the work with some looking up questions, some sourcing images and then a group updating the website. Everyone was busy and had a vital role to play and the allotted one hour for the session went quickly.
All the groups managed to achieve their target with the students finding it fun at the same time working in a big team. The benefit to all the students was apparent as each session required teamwork, good communication and working to tight deadlines as well as learning about adding content to a website.
