2013 Building Learning

Building Learning Keynote – Making the Case for Making in Schools

Published by:

Presenter: Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager
Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA


Presentation Title: Building Learning Keynote – Making the Case for Making in Schools

Presentation Description: The Maker Movement is a revolutionary global collaboration of people learning to solve problems with modern tools and technology. Adults and children are combining new technologies and timeless craft traditions to create exciting projects and control their world. The implications are profound for schools and districts concerned with engaging students, maintaining relevance, and preparing children to solve problems unanticipated by the curriculum. The technological game-changers of 3D printing, physical computing and computer science require and fuel transformations in the learning environment. K-12 educators can adapt the powerful technology and “can do” maker ethos to revitalize learner-centered teaching and learning in all subject areas.

Presentation Description: What does recent research say about teaching and learning with technology? What are some of the generalizations we can make about the climate and culture in effective technology rich learning environments?

In this presenation I’ll share some generalizations I found in researching this topic and explore some of the factors that support technology integration. Identifying generalizations can affirm the hunches we have and provides evidence to support our initiatives to upgrade and transform teaching and learning.

I have set a Think Big About Learning webpage with some tools for us to interact via during and after the presentation. I hope you’ll join the backchannel conversation, particapte in the polls, and post your own examples. Let’s Learn, Share and Remix ideas together.
