Learner Quality Characters ::: Denham Court Public School

Worked with the amazing students and staff at Denham Court Public School to turn their learner qualities into character illustrations. Fondly known as ‘Iggy’, Ignite uses STEM subjects to demonstrate learner qualities to students and inspire deeper learning and engagement.

I came into the school and met with a group of students and teachers. Together we brainstormed what each disposition meant to them; role played what body positions and facial expressions conveyed those dispositions; and discussed what was special about Denham Court Public School. By the end of the session we settled on a concept to create a robot inspired character that uses STEM subjects to demonstrate the disposition characteristics.

We worked through a number of versions for the characters, giving the students opportunities to provide valuable feedback and fully participate in the design process.

The end result was a collection of characters that the students, teachers and hopefully the wider school community will connect with and use successfully to make the process of learning an exciting and rewarding experience.

  1. Curious
  2. Motivated
  3. Challenged
  4. Creative
