An Introduction to Maker Education for Teachers

Thursday, March 16, 2017

6:00p.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET (register)

On Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) will be hosting a webinar to showcase how teachers are introducing maker education to their students.

Maker education is about giving students access to a new class of technologies, enabling students to design, build, invent and problem solve in new and unique ways. This type of “maker” learning allows students to transform ideas into reality, sparks interest in STEM careers and develops growth mindset, curiosity, self-efficacy and collaborative problem-solving skills.

How can teachers introduce maker education into their schools or classrooms? Join this webinar to learn how to get started with makerspaces, and leave with practical examples to engage your students. Experience first-hand how teachers are integrating self-directed personalized learning using real materials in the areas of coding, circuits, toy hacking, construction, robotics and more. Learn how to co-design interactive, highly engaging makerspace plans and projects with students.

iNACOL CEO Susan Patrick said, “Maker education creates pathways for students and teachers interested in design and problem-solving by cultivating learning environments that inspire students to invent, co-design and develop vital skills for success in today’s modernized, global economy.”

This webinar is free to attend – participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
