The session will explain how technology can support Project Based Learning in the classroom and how a Makerspace can allow teachers to expand their lessons to allow for diverse creations from students to demonstrate understanding of the content covered across the curriculum.
Tools in a makerspace will be discussed and will include, but not be limited to, cardboard, 3D printers, duct tape, laser cuttters, Play-Doh, and much, much more.
Teachers will walk out of the session feeling much more comfortable using their school's makerspace or excited to start the conversation about creating a makerspace in their own school.
