Project-Based Learning and Makerspaces Across the Curriculum
Listen and learn : Lecture
Wednesday, December 2, 2:30–3:15 pm PST (Pacific Standard Time)
The maker movement has started to spread across the country, but many educators think makerspaces are for STEM only. We'll share first-hand experience of integrating project-based learning to help all content areas use makerspaces to support student learning.
|Audience:||Curriculum/district specialists, Teachers, Library media specialists|
|Attendee devices:||Devices not needed|
|Topic:||Maker activities & programs|
|ISTE Standards:||For Educators:
|Additional detail:||Session recorded for video-on-demand|
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.
