Teachers will go through the same lesson that students will go through. Plus, we will give a plethora of other resources for implementing Makey Makey in the classroom.
Teachers will create a four page book, then draw a playable circuit, and learn how to code the circuit to either create sound effects or read the story they just wrote! Attendees will be immersed in hands-on making and learning and walk away with the know- how to implement Makey Makey across school curriculum. After sharing books, we will delve into other Makey Makey ideas for the classroom.
