So you have heard the phrases “genius hour” or “google time” and you are interested but not sure where to start...this workshop is for you! Come join us at Fab Lab San Diego and experience the Maker Movement’s new craze, what CraftED Curriculum defines as “Tinker Time”. Participants will learn about structures for setting up and maintaining a deeper learning classroom that allows students to explore their interests but also holds them accountable for creating, making, exploring and thus learning deeply. Participants will leave with concrete plans and free resources from CraftED Curriculum and will have the chance to tinker themselves in an incredible community space, Fab Lab!
Teachers will engage in simulations, protocols, hands-on learning, planning and reflection to prepare them to implement Tinker Time in their classroom. All participants will receive a workshop booklet filled with:
Strategies, materials and organizational ideas for fostering organic play and sustaining student interest
Resources for planning Tinker Time and ensuring deeper learning
Activities for facilitating and assessing Tinker Time (based on Genius Hour/Google Time)
