Make/Hack/Play Together – Mini Course from P2PU
This mini-course, which is a part of the HP Catalyst Academy, will introduce you as an educator to the “maker movement,” both in digital and non-digital realms. Making is a fun way to experience production-centered, peer-driven learning and is a great way to engage students in STEMx and to develop important real world skills.
Join P2PU to make or hack something of your choice (a map, an app, an infographic, a sculpture, music, a zine, food, a video, a web page, a toy, or more) and to talk about the role making has in the STEMx classroom.
This mini-course is expected to take approximately 12 hours. Participants will be able to work through the activities on their own schedule during this time period.
In this experience, participant will:
- Experience production-centered, peer-driven learning firsthand,
- Make something of your choice,
- Hack or remix something someone else has made,
- Explore how the maker movement might fit into your own teaching and learning context, and,
- Connect in meaningful ways with the other teachers and learners in this group.
In this peer learning experience, educators of all ages from elementary through post-secondary are invited to come join us - we are all teachers and learners! There are no requirements except a desire to learn and a willingness to participate.
