Two Makerspace sessions with the Year 5’s and 6’s and then a lunchtime webinar - SeeSaw in the Makerspace, then an afternoon of network and infrastructure sorting for me. These SeeSaw events are great free PLD and even though I’ve been immersed in the Maker culture for several years now I picked up a couple of new products I want to investigate, a couple of lesson ideas and there were two statements they repeated more than once that have stuck with me.....we want our learners to be ‘Problem Seekers’ not just problem solvers (I LOVE this) and ‘Voice and Choice’, we do this well but I liked the simple word association as I think it will stick with our classroom teachers. If you are still thinking about our Makerspace open day and PLD coming up get in touch as we are thinkers by about running .two days as there’s been so much interest. I’m confirming spots for Friday 6th tomorrow. Feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
