This in-person workshop will instruct educators and support staff on how maker education can activate project-based learning (PBL) and innovation mindsets in any classroom, media center or activity space.
This interactive workshop will share a general overview of makerspaces, maker education foundations, and practical steps to integrate making into planning and practice. Workshop activities will include:

  • Assessing current experience with making and PBL
  • Exploring hands-on approaches to learning and innovation with a DC Maker Educator
  • Inventing and innovating with materials commonly found in classrooms
  • Exploring new maker-centric uses of creative technologies available in any school
  • Creating maker activity centers that work
  • Ensuring maker activities are accessible for all learners
  • Creating a take-home resource kit to jump-start making in the classroom

Registration is limited and will close one week in advance of the session.

A light breakfast will be provided. Participants who complete a brief pre-survey will be eligible to win a maker classroom starter kit worth $200. The pre-survey will be sent upon registration.
The training will take place on Thursday, May 4, 2017, from 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in the H.D. Woodson High School library, 540 55th St. NE.
