The students and teachers of grade 5 always await the most interesting part of the academic year which is the exhibition unit. It is a platform for us to showcase our understanding of the PYP essential elements. Being the 21st century learners, we brainstormed through different issues faced by people across the globe. Later, we collaboratively decided that Gadget addiction is apt as it is a local, national and global issue. We have begun with our exhibition journey with lot of curiosity and enthusiasm. There were different questions popping in our mind about the issue of gadget addiction. Few major questions that were driving us towards our inquiry were what are the 21st gadgets? How can we make sure that we are not addicted to them? How can we use gadgets constructively? and more. Being true PYPians we have started researching through various websites like makersempire.com, teach hub .com, and many more. We are now looking forward to inquire further through guest speaker sessions and field trips.
