In this course participants create and make using new tools and explore how creating and making can support several pedagogical practices, including experiential learning and personalized learning. The course will include daily reading and discussion of literature related to innovative pedagogy and transformative practices made possible with new tools for creating and making.
Participants will complete hands-on workshops with community makers and educational experts to build skills in using new tools for creating and making. The skill building sessions will be followed by a creation lab, where participants will apply their new skill with new tools to produce a prototype. Each day will end with an opportunity to reflect and set new goals based on that reflection of growth. In our online community we will discuss the application of new media, new tools, and new skills to the challenge of meeting district, state, and national standards with students in today’s learning environments. All participants will complete and contribute a culminating project that applies readings, practice, and products to the essential question “What role does creating and making play in designing innovative approaches to teaching and learning? ” to a forum that informs a global community of educators.
