Cultivating the Maker Mindset

Get ready to spark wonder and awe within students! Discover the “why” behind makerspaces and how to foster a culture of innovation in your school. Be inspired by how immersing students in the 4Cs empowers learners to take ownership over their education. Cultivating the maker mindset has the potential to ignite a passion for learning within both educators and students. Learn how our school launched our makerspace, and how the addition of both low tech and high tech items have created relevant learning opportunities to meet the unique needs of every learner. This session will focus on cultivating the maker mindset in staff, students and their families. Best of all, attendees will recognize the power behind including making in their school and how to kickstart it to fit their needs and interests. This session includes a hands on activity where attendees get to engage in creating a form of wearable technology to get a feel for how kids can be immersed in creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and curiosity!

Leverage Technology to Ignite School Culture and Ignite Innovation

​Reshape school culture to bring wonder, awe, and excitement back into learning for students and educators. Equip students to become creative thinkers and acclimate to an ever-changing world through diverse learning experiences that increase student achievement. Student engagement and learning soar when school culture embraces relationships, innovator’s mindset, and student centered learning serves as a core belief of purposeful planning. Participants will gain a strong understanding of how project based learning, makerspace, passion projects, and the integration of technology empowers student voice and choice. This promotes students to be passionately curious, creative, and driven to take ownership over their learning to excel. In this session, participants will be immersed in an interactive learning experience through Nearpod.
