Critical Making and Innovation Camp for Educators
Mon, Jul 17, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Jul 21, 2017, 6:00 AM EDT
In One Week, Jump Start Critical Making And Innovation At Your School
Many schools have maker spaces – or are contemplating building them – but aren’t exactly sure how to use them or understand how to leverage their use across the curriculum. EXPLO Studio is focused on critical making: transforming the ordinary into something with meaning. It’s not making for the sake of making, but making for a purpose.
Mindset Over Machines
(Though You’ll Be Trained On Our Maker Equipment)
As an educator, critical making depends far less on the equipment you have and far more on how you think about making in relation to your curriculum, your teaching, and your school culture. EXPLO Studio’s critical making approach cultivates critical thinking, complex problem solving, creativity, clarity of communication, and collaboration. Good critical making will help students see in new and innovative ways.
