We have several edtech offerings this summer, but for one week in July, it’s going to get a bit STEAMy, with design thinking, coding and project based learning scheduled! Registration is still open, so you can sign up today!
July 13-14: STEAM-ing It Up: Design Thinking in the Classroom; learn from Debbie Fucoloro and Christine Ruder. Beginning with essential questions, they will explore many strategies and practices available to maker educators– makerspace and PBL processes that include: LEGOs, littleBits, squishy electronics, Sphero, wearable computing, Arduino, recycling and robotics, coding and more… all of which allow educators and students to share, engage, explore and collaborate on their learning journey together.
July 15: Adventures in STEM: Learn to Code; Debbie Fucoloro continues to share her best practices in drag and drop programming in a hands-on, game-like constructivist atmosphere.
July 16: Project Based Learning & 21st Century Skills in the Elementary Classroom with LEGO Education; join Steffanie Forbes and Laura Jackson has they guide you through hands-on activities that cover modeling in science, math, engineering, language arts, reading, social studies and literacy– using LEGOs.
July 17: Project Based Learning & 21st Century Skills with LEGO Education; Steffanie Forbes and Laura Jackson focus on the secondary classroom in their second day at EdPlus. Explore real world math, science, renewable energy and engineering, plus simple & motorized mechanisms and physics, again, in hands-on activities.
