Description

This hands-on workshop is an opportunity to learn about the 'Maker Movement' and how to integrate making and creation with the Technologies Curriculum. On the day, you will explore and create with various pieces of technology. This event would be particularly useful for educators who are interested in or have access to a Makerspace. 

This workshop aims to help educators implement a hands-on approach to teaching the Technologies Curriculum with an emphasis on making and creating. It is particularly relevant to those wanting to establish or have access to a Makerspace.

An introduction to the theory behind the 'Maker Movement' within education and plenty of opportunities to explore and learn with various digital technology devices will be included on the day. The workshop will also demonstrate how to plan and implement a STEM unit of learning which incorporates making. The content and technology will have a focus on the primary years.
