Maker Educator Boot Camp 

An intensive course for educators who want to learn maker skills, technologies and teaching methodologies and apply it to their curriculum, classroom, and project-based learning.

Maker Education is an interest-led pedagogical style where learners design, plan, prototype and iterates their very own physical projects. In this program participants will learn maker skills, principles, tools & technologies by doing just that – building projects. Projects will tie into curriculum connections and will be focused on what could be built in the classroom. No previous technology experience is required, we’ll take you from the ground up.

 

This program has a focus on educational tech making, including MakeCode, Micro:bit, Circuit Playground Express, Circuit Python, and Digital Fabrication including 3D printing and laser cutting. You will learn these skills through hands-on application by building real projects.

 

On completion of this course participants will be familiar with the following tools and technologies:

  • 2D & 3D design (TinkerCad & Illustrator)
  • Digital fabrication using 3D printers and laser cutters
  • Robotics with Microcontrollers – Micro:Bit, Circuit Playground Express
  • Educational Coding – MakeCode, Circuit Python

 

Aside from technical skills, participants of Maker Educator Boot Camp will also learn how to design and facilitate programs that encourage learners to:

  • exercise genuine creativity within real design constraints
  • brainstorm ideas and critically assess their viability
  • plan, prototype, fail fast, and move forward
  • be resourceful and use their network (online & off) to find answers
  • tap in to their own interests, share knowledge, and collaborate with others
  • embed learning by working on real physical projects
  • evaluate project-based learning
