Week 3 – Sensing

Week 3 – Sensing

This week is about sensing. We seek to explore the existing landscape, to try to connect and make sense of it, so that it provides context for our projects. By exploring and sensing through complexity we will attempt to express ourselves collectively and individually to both suit the needs of learners as well as shape a better future thorugh our projects.
