Event description

Description

The Making in Education Conference will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 9 am to 4 pm.

Less conference, more hands-on hangout, the Faire's 3rd annual event for educators - classroom teachers, administrators, after-school program staff, librarians and others in the field - will focus on:

  • practical maker skills in STEAM education;

  • maker activities that can be implemented in the classroom;

  • alignment to academic standards and other assessment topics; and

  • Google Making Spaces schools: seven case studies.

Participants are invited to bring projects and ideas for design thinking, rapid prototyping and iteration activities.

Keynote Speaker: Erica Rosenfeld Halverson, Professor of Digital Media and Literacy in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Professor Halverson studies how people learn in and through the arts across a variety of contexts including makerspaces, museums, and public libraries.

Conference Organizers

The Making in Education Conference is presented by Brinn Labs (the Maker Initiatives of the Betty Brinn Museum) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education, with generous sponsorship support from Rockwell Automation. The Conference is part of a year-round professional development program for classroom teachers, school and district administrators, STEM/STEAM coordinators, librarians and others in the field that showcase best practices in project-based learning, and share resources, skills and strategies that address both the needs and interests of existing educational makerspaces and organizations in the early stages of the developing of maker education programs.

Brinn Labs is one of 15 Google Making Spaces Hub institutions in the country, and a collaborator with leading science centers and museums to develop national models for maker-educator training.
