Event Details

Join colleagues for 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. Next, we will discuss strategies for effective prompt setting. 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, breakthroughs in science education, and the global maker movement combine to create rich learning experiences

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.

You will learn:

  • How new tools and technology can reinvigorate Project-Based Learning
  • Best classroom practices for integrating maker technology
  • How to plan engaging projects based on the TMI design model
  • How to choose the technologies with the maximum learning impact
  • How to make the case for making, tinkering, and engineering
  • How to incorporate found, recycled, and reclaimed materials in project development 

Fabrication with cardboard and found materials, squishy electronic circuits, wearable computing, Arduino micro controllers, Hummingbird robotics, LittleBits, and computer programming are all on the menu.

 Bring a laptop and your imagination. We’ll supply the rest (craft materials, art supplies, construction elements). Invention is the mother of learning!

This workshop is suitable for teachers of all year levels and subject areas.
