Literacy and Making: Transform your Workshop into a Makerspace

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

While makerspaces in our libraries, STEM labs, and innovation spaces are wonderful opportunities for students to tinker, prototype, make, explore,and discover, we can expand our thinking of maker education by infusing it into our core literacy curriculum. Imagine students tinkering with text, prototyping messages to be put down in writing, devising problems for characters, and inventing new ways to communicate. Makerspaces for literacy create a great environment for mixing, remixing, gaming, and discovering, all while becoming lifelong readers and writers. In this session, participants will consider ways to reinvent their own literacy activities to include more opportunities for student making.
