FREE Workshop for Educators: Integrating Maker Education at Your School
July 30, July 31, August 2, or August 3 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
Held at St. Hugh’s College, University of Oxford
We’ve all been hearing about the Maker Movement, actively creating instead of consuming. In this one day workshop, we’ll take a look at how schools are approaching computer science and engineering education to stay in line with the evolving job market and makers of today.
Digital Media Academy’s Curriculum & Instruction Team will share their approach to Maker Education, having participants understand the essential elements of project-based learning and design thinking. Learn to seek curiosity in your students, find projects that hold a purpose and make a difference, embrace failure as fearless creators, and how to facilitate instead of control. Finally we’ll learn a formula to use when writing a maker lesson plan, each get to write and pitch an actual lesson idea, and give each other feedback.
Space is limited. Only 20 seats available per session.
Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 10:00am to 4:00pm
Calling all makers, creators, students, educators, dreamers, and innovators! Come join us as we put on a FREE, hands-on learning space in an open house environment. There will be 15 minute hands-on activities in 3D Printing, 3D Modeling, Virtual Reality, and Circuits!
