Digital and data literacy with Tinker Kits

Test out the UTS Library’s Tinker Kit collection. You will get hands-on time with some of our favourite kits: Makey MakeyLittle Bits Synth KitSphero SPRK+, the PocketLab Voyager, 360 degree cameras and the VR Headsets. Tinker kits classes involve group work, curiosity and play, while exposing participants to technologies like simple circuitry, drag and drop code, robotics and virtual reality. In this session you can quiz librarians on how you can embed these technologies and skills into your classes.

What is Tooltime?

Tooltime is a series of short informal showcases, where staff from all areas are given the opportunity to share a gadget, tool, app, workflow or technique. The technologies showcased can range from anything that could engage learners, streamline teaching or are simply time savers. Sessions do not have to formally address teaching and learning concepts in-depth, but rather recognise the technology’s potential capabilities in this area. Each session in the series will run for 30 minutes and are intended for either academic or professional staff.


The Tooltime hosts make no claims on the utility of tools and do not necessarily provide support for the gadgets, widgets or workflows presented.
