The 21st century requires critical thinkers who can solve problems in new, creative ways. In addition, more than ever before, changing technology will require students to be masters of independent, self-guided learning. So, how can we facilitate learning experiences that promote creativity, critical thinking, independence, and other crucial skills that prepare our students for this constantly evolving world? In this webinar we will explore how weaving maker education into instruction can create authentic learning experiences that teach the concepts and skills students need.
