Learning Learning: Makers, Designers, And Problem-Solvers (TICKETED EVENT)
Feedback form is now closed.
This workshop offers a day of hard fun and problem solving — where computing meets tinkering and design. The workshop begins with the case for project-based learning, making, tinkering, and engineering. Participants will have the chance to tinker with a range of exciting new low- and high-tech construction materials that can really amplify the potential of your students. Next, we will discuss strategies for effective lessons and assessment. You will view examples of children engaged in complex problem solving with new game-changing technologies and identify lessons for your own classroom practice. Powerful ideas from the Reggio Emilia Approach, breakthroughs in science education, and the global maker movement combine to create rich learning experiences.
