I will be sharing my process for implementing invention literacy with multiple age groups. By sharing all I've learned from these attempts, participants will learn the challenges and successes of instituting maker education into a traditional school setting. Participants will also walk away with student reflection guides and multiple methods for boosting creativity in all students.
Participants will learn many methods for sparking creativity in students by sharing invention literacy, maker education, and half-baked prototypes. They'll learn how to empower teachers on campus so their learners will be empowered and confident makers. Plus, they'll be given ideas for inventive material use that will build curiosity about the way our world works. Lastly, they'll be given a method for documenting and student reflection that will ensure that trials and mistakes are rewarded as part of the learning process.
