Game Changers: Tools for Constructivist Learning
A panel of seasoned educators will share their experiences, strategies, tips, and tricks for running a successful "hands-on", constructivist learning space. This applies to teachers looking to incorporate new technologies into their classroom, after-school robotics club and girl scout troop leaders, district administrators looking for new ideas, and especially those interested in evolving a fab lab or "makerspace". Activities, curriculum, new technologies, and other resources will be discussed.
