Our purpose is to encourage teachers to employ the MAKER mindset and ecourage students to use their imagination and MAKE their learning visisble. We will share a model lesson, share ideas and projects from our school, brainstorm in small groups to come up with ideas for attendees classes, and share out with the group.
This is a curated list of articles and sites thqt promote MAKER in education. When students are given the freedom of voice and choice in sharing their learning, they take ownership and invest more time in creating a higher level of learning and sharing.
