Making in Schools – a series of posts about getting started with making in education

Check out this six-part blog post called Making in Schools by Aaron Vanderwerff and Robbie Tourney. Aaron and Robbie are both teachers at the Lighthouse Community Charter School, a K-12 public school in Oakland, California and are part of the Lighthouse Creativity Lab team. They are also part of the team opening a new sibling school this fall called Lodestar, with a similar commitment to design and student agency.

The posts cover getting started with a maker program, connecting design and student agency to curriculum, developing an inquiry-based model of teacher campus-wide, and connecting to the larger maker community.

Making in Schools is a good read for educators beginning their “maker” journey, or wondering where to go next!
