Make/Hack/Play Together – Mini Course from P2PU

November 4, 2013 – November 22, 2013 all-day

logo-1This 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:

  1. Experience production-centered, peer-driven learning firsthand,
  2. Make something of your choice,
  3. Hack or remix something someone else has made,
  4. Explore how the maker movement might fit into your own teaching and learning context, and,
  5. 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.
