Tinkerzoo Maker Camp was a day to be a creator, inventor, idea generator, learner. Participants were provided theory, mission, and tools with an opportunity to figure out how it all fits together in their own teaching and learning environment. How can Strawbees increase geometrical thinking? How can creating a video game on the iPad with the Floors app build design thinking and critical skills in ELA classes? Have you ever welded? What can we build to meet the standards in our social studies class? Teachers were highly engaged and excited to think about the various skills they are able to build into their student's toolbox. Here is the agenda from the day with lots of resources...there will be more sessions throughout the school year...come be a Maker with us.
3D Printing Day made connections from our guest experts on what could be done in the classroom, across the content areas. Dream it, design it, print it will build skills that take learning to the next level. Curriculum such as the City X Project and software such as TinkerCad were played with and brought to fruition. By the end of the day participants analyzed current teaching for areas of 3D printing applications and realized that tools are available for their own teaching and learning in the area of 3D printing. "How?" you say... just reach out to us at REMC 12W and we will fill you in. Here is the agenda from the day with lots of resources. Again, be on the look out for more session at our REMC Innovation Center around the implementation of 3D Printing.
Keep on keeping on...the learning path!
