Amazing #edtech #maker event for @The_School faculty happening now! Thanks @110kaiser!

Kathryn Kaiser, Primary Division Head at The School at Columbia University, was inspired by Sylvia Martinez (@smartinez) and Gary Stager (@garystager) at ISTE’s annual conference this summer. Sylvia and Gary co-wrote the recent practical book, Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom. As per the book’s website, the book is about:

Using technology to make, repair, or customize the things we need brings engineering, design, and computer science to the masses. Fortunately for educators, this maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing.

Kathryn purchased a ton of materials and set up 10 stations for faculty to explore, tinker, make, collaborate, and share. Below is the document she sent out to faculty listing the stations and supplies. I asked her to also task faculty with thinking of ways to incorporate these ideas into their current or future classroom projects.
