Are you a teacher who enjoys exploring and experimenting with how digital technology can enhance learning in creative ways? Then the Alphaplus Educator Makerspace is for you.
A makerspace is a place where people come together to create or invent things, either using traditional crafts or technology. At the AlphaPlus Educator Makerspace, we combine the craft of teaching with newer technologies to make things that elevate teaching and learning.
Each year we choose a theme and a technology that matches that theme. This year our theme is Empowered Learning and our technology is H5P, an activity creation tool. We will create interactive activities from your favourite resources or you can choose a resource from our Open Education Resources library.
You will attend six 90-minute online workshops at a time that works for our group to
- learn to use an activity creation tool
- create dynamic activities that provide learners with choice and feedback
- learn about how to find, evaluate and adapt Open Education Resources
- assess the makerspace experience as a possible practice in your own teaching
Learn more about makerspaces and our plans for the Fall here: The AlphaPlus Educator Makerspace.
Join us starting October 16 to exercise your creativity in a facilitated, collaborative environment.
