Makeology is a hands-on Maker Summit for curriculum leaders, classroom educators, principals, and heads of schools who want to learn more about how to leverage the Making pedagogy and practices to deepen, enliven, and transform teaching and learning for their students. Join us on March 3 and 4, 2017 at the American International School Chennai to experience hands-on professional learning through the following strands.StrandsMaking in the ClassroomLearning through Making is not new. It is deeply rooted in and driven by social constructivist learning pedagogies and practices going back to Dewey, Montessori, Vygotsky, Piaget, Freire, Papert, and others. On the other hand, emerging global trends such as a quest for authenticity, ubiquitous access to tools, and social networking platforms are driving the Maker Movement around the world. This strand is for educators who want to develop understanding and practices for learning through Making in their classrooms.ProgrammingIn the mid-1960s, Seymour Papert asked, “Does the computer program the child or does the child program the computer.” Programming is a way of thinking, Making and experiencing the world. Beyond vocational benefits, computer programming gives young people agency and power in an increasingly complex technologically sophisticated world. Programming is also fundamental to engineering, science, and making sense of data. It also mirrors the writing process.Design ThinkingDesign Thinking is a process used in a variety of fields to address and solve problems through Making new communications, new interactions, new artifacts, and new environments. At a deeper level, Design thinking triggers learners to think about others and learn through problem finding and solving.Wearable TechnologyMoore’s Law observes that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. We’re now at the point where these tiny circuits can fit into our clothes and other wearable objects. This is transforming the way we use technology and experience everyday life. This course will take participants on a journey through a design process to create wearable interactive devices.
