Meaningful Makerspaces
Tying Tinkering to the TEKS

The Makerspace Movement is changing the way students learn as well as the role of the teacher in today’s classroom.  How can you use maker activities to build grit, encourage problem solving, and create meaningful learning experiences for the learners in your classroom? As part of this experience, you will participate in an activity that will help you see a maker activity from the learner’s perspective.   Most importantly, you will be given an opportunity to practice designing maker challenges that will incorporate the TEKS, provide relevance, and empower learners by allowing them to learn by doing.
