My Journey With Makerspaces

WHY?

How can we support divergent and creative thinking in our students from K to 12?

Promote skill development of the 4 C's, Numeracy, & Literacy.

Collaborative Fridays: Design Model: TMI

We want to have creators of technology, not just consumers of it. We want students to learn technology through purposeful play.

HOW?

Using 2 Tools: Makey Makey & Scratch

MaKey MaKey is a circuit board kit that allows you to connect everyday objects to create touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a great Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in-between.

Scratch is a free programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations. Scratch uses block coding to teach the fundamentals of coding.
