An Awesome Project – ”Making” Schools Better for Kids

Presenter

Veteran educators with decades of school reform experience share how making schools more like Maker Faire actually improves learning conditions for all students across all grades and subject areas. We will discuss the learning theory that makes making so effective and share strategies for welcoming teachers into maker culture.

Tips for inspiring administrators and other parents will be shared. We all can play a role in making school the best seven hours of a kid's day.
