Born in the Generation of AI, What value can WoodWorking deliver? (Secondary School Wood-Working 1)

Times are ever-evolving, and both the broader environment and students' needs are constantly changing. After engaging with school woodworking programs, we discovered that the group of students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) has grown significantly, becoming a mainstream presence in every school. To address this, we have designed woodworking courses of varying lengths and activities. We aim to help students think and learn through a hands-on experience of woodworking, witnessing them build self-identity and self-confidence step-by-step as they create tangible objects from scratch.

Initially, when students encounter woodworking tools like hand saws, they perceive them as horrifying beasts, fearing the potential for danger and injury. However, after a few practice sessions, they begin to understand how to operate hand saws correctly and safely. The woodworking class teaches them to use and familiarize themselves with the proper use of these tools. By the midpoint of the course, students become capable of cutting woode boards to the required dimensions themselves, grasping the wisdom that "water can sink a boat, but also bear the load." The once feared tools in the students' hands transforms into suitable instruments, allowing them to use the hand saw to create their own unique works.

Through woodworking, students no longer merely interact with tablets or phones but can touch and feel the texture and warmth of wood. Students discover their own potential through their own hands, step-by-step creating a finished product – this is their greatest achievement. By engaging with natural materials, they develop a deeper appreciation for the craftsmanship and artistry involved in woodworking.
