The Maker Movement: Developing a Maker Mentality across Curriculum
The Maker Movement has started to see the creation of Makerspaces in schools and libraries all across the country. The spaces are a perfect place to support teachers exploring Project Based Learning and students who want to look into aspects of their own learning that is not covered in the traditional curriculum. While having a space is a nice place to start, there needs to be a culture shift in a school that will sustain the life of the makerspace in the long-term. Join Nick Provenzano as he explains why the Maker Mentality is a cultural shift that needs to happen in schools and classrooms to support all stakeholders looking to break the bonds of traditional education. Focusing on the 8 aspects of The Maker Mentality; dreamer, fearless, passionate, inclusive, hacker, storyteller, artist, and trueness, Nick will explore how every teacher, administrator, and student can play a part in creating the culture needed to support student learning. Based in part on his best-selling book, The Maker Mentality, Nick will share first-hand examples of how this culture shift can take place in your school.
