Powerful problem-solving methodologies can be used in tandem with a makerspace to teach students how to solve complex problems without predefined solutions. This panel invites leadership from 3 schools, a private all-boys school in Massachusetts, a public middle and high school in Vermont, and a studio-based innovation school, to share their stories of transformation and creating innovative programs that break down the boundaries of subjects, engaging students in authentic hands-on learning.
- Examine the impact of an innovation lab on the school
- Compare different approaches to building interdisciplinary connections between subjects using the innovation lab
- How to use digital tools as a way to bridge learning in innovation labs and outside the lab
