Make Yourself Into a Maker: Builds 4 and 5 will explore further concepts of the maker culture. The goal of this session to work with educators to understand, explore, design, and develop maker projects that can be infused to the standards they are expected to cover.
Like many things in education, this work cannot be an add-on. These two days we will unfold and explore how to weave this type of learning into the work we are already doing so it does not become one more thing.
You do not need to have attended Make Yourself into a Maker - Makerspace: Builds 1-3 to attend this session. While helpful, it will not put you behind. These two days are full of hands-on learning, less talk, more action style of learning.
Be ready to make, experiment, explore, and get messy as we develop learning that will help engage the learners we work within our learning spaces. Come ready to be awesome!
The first day we will explore how to take a picture book and connect it to any standard of any grade level and develop a project around the book and the standards.
The second day we will do a full day PD on the Makey Makey: Invention Literacy helping everyone learn how the Makey Makey works and how to use it in your learning space.
You do not have to have taken Maker Space Builds 1-3 to take this course.
