Makerspace is a huge buzzword in education, but many teachers do not know what it is or how to get started. As Makerspaces are popping up in classrooms and libraries across the country, the maker movement is giving students and teachers the time and space they need to tinker, learn, imagine, and create.
On January 14, 2017, the IRC, in collaboration with the Faculty of Education, will be hosting our first Makerspace event. It will be a hands-on learning experience giving attendees an opportunity to explore a variety of high-tech and low-tech centres, promoting creativity, innovation, collaboration and 21st Century learning skills needed for teaching students for future careers that may not yet exist.
After a fun day of hands-on Maker experience, you’ll leave ready to bring Maker ideas into your classroom. We’ll bring all of the supplies (and lunch); all you need to bring is your creativity and curiosity!
