Learn to learn and teach with Hummingbird robotics\, littleBits\, Scratch\, Snap!\, Turtle Art\, wearable electronics\, Arduino\, digital paper craft\, programmable toys\, and other exciting new materials in a project-based context. \nJoin colleagues for a day of hard fun and problem solving — where computing meets tinkering and design. The workshop begins with the case for project-based learning\, making\, tinkering\, and engineering. Next\, we will discuss strategies for effective prompt-setting. You will view examples of children engaged in complex problem solving with new game-changing technologies and identify lessons for your own classroom practice. Powerful ideas from the Reggio Emilia Approach\, breakthroughs in science education\, and the global maker movement combine to create rich learning experiences. \nSTEM/STEAM Come to Life! \nParticipants will have the chance to tinker with a range of exciting new low- and high-tech construction materials that can really amplify the potential of your students. The day culminates in the planning of a classroom project based on the TMI (Think-Make-Improve) design model. Specific contents will be addressed for primary and secondary audiences. \nYou will learn: \n\nHow new tools and technology can reinvigorate Project-Based Learning\nBest classroom practices for integrating maker technology\nHow to plan engaging projects based on the TMI design model\nHow to choose the technologies with the maximum learning impact\nHow to make the case for making\, tinkering\, and engineering\n\nFabrication with cardboard and found materials\, electronic circuits\, wearable computing\, Arduino\, robotics\, conductive paint\, drones and computer programming are all on the menu. \nBring a laptop and your imagination. We’ll supply the rest (craft materials\, art supplies\, construction elements). Invention is the mother of learning! \nThis workshop is suitable for all schools\, grades\, and subject areas. \nDates and Venues: \n\n29 May – Warrnambool (Register here)\n9 June – Maryborough (Register here)\n13 June – Wodonga (Register here)\n\nThis special workshop series is sponsored by the Victoria Department of Education and Training.\nSpace is limited! Register today! \n\n\nAbout the Workshop Leader\nGary Stager is one of the world’s leading experts and advocates for computer programming\, robotics and learning-by-doing in classrooms. In 1990\, Dr. Stager led professional development in the world’s first laptop schools and played a major role in the early days of online education. In addition to being a popular keynote speaker at some of the world’s most prestigious education conferences\, Gary is a journalist\, teacher educator\, consultant\, professor\, software developer\, publisher\, and school administrator. An elementary teacher by training\, he has taught students from preschool through doctoral studies. Gary is the founder of the Constructing Modern Knowledge summer institute for educators.\n\nDr. Stager is co-author of Invent To Learn – Making\, Tinkering\, and Engineering in the Classroom\, called the “bible of the maker movement in schools\,” by Larry Magid of CBS and The San Jose Mercury News.\nWhen Jean Piaget wanted to better understand how children learn mathematics\, he hired Seymour Papert. When Dr. Papert wanted to create a high-tech alternative learning environment for incarcerated at-risk teens\, he hired Gary Stager. This work was the basis for Gary’s doctoral dissertation and documented Papert’s most-recent institutional research project.\n\n\n Dr. Stager’s work has earned a Ph.D. in Science and Mathematics Education and a Grammy Award.\nGary is also on the advisory board of the NSF-funded project\, BJC4NYC: Bringing a Rigorous Computer Science Principles Course to the Largest School System in the US.\nSpace is limited! Register today!\n URL:http://inventtolearn.com/event/vic-australia-workshops-2017/ CATEGORIES:Gary,professional development,workshop END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
