Create Make Learn Summer Institute 2014
a fun filled week creating, making, and learning together
July 14 - 18, 2014
MAKING in education is not being driven by new pedagogy, it's being driven by more affordable and powerful technologies, and new opportunities to engage students while equipping them with the skills necessary for college, career, and life in their community. Never before have we been able to turn a classroom into an safe and wondrous place to learn by making art, music, movies, games, ebooks, apps, toys, 3D prototypes, and new inventions. This summer, come experience the power of using today’s tools and their impact on learning during a fun-filled week creating, making and learning together. You’ll come back to your classroom with new skills, new tools, and new ideas for increasing student engagement, empowerment, and agency as well as ideas on how to use the power of making to meet Common Core and Next Generation standards.
