ReMAKE Education Summit 2017
Hundreds of teachers and makers gathered at the ReMake Education Summit, organized by the Sonoma County Office of Education on August 2 - 4, 2017, at Studio 180 in Sonoma. I really like this local maker event, which helps you connect with some of the same folks you might meet at Maker Faire, but without all the crowds, and with a healthy focus on education in our area.
Here are photos of the events and exhibits featured in this set:
• 360 Storytelling and Immersive Learning through VR Creation (Dimitri Moore & Lisa Jobson)
• Design Thinking with Puppets (Sam Patterson & Elaine Wrenn)
• Storytelling in the STEAM Classroom - NASA’s Journey to Mars (Kimberly Brush, Casey Shea & Anna Van Dordrecht)
• HyperDuino interactive maker projects (Roger Wagner)
• How to program a Raspberry Pi
• Make your own cardboard guitar
• 180 Studios maker workshop
I gave a talk about our Maker Art classes on Thursday afternoon. We teach children to create magical worlds together, combining art, tech and storytelling. Our students get really engaged in the process, which helps them develop their creative, problem-solving and social skills. The talk was well received and folks seemed to enjoy hearing about our latest classes on the Time Machine and Robot World.
Many thanks to Dan Blake, Matt O'Donnell, Casey Shea, Anna Van Dordrecht and the whole team at the Sonoma County Office of Education and 180 Studios for organizing this fine gathering. They did a great job connecting teachers, makers and resources. It was a great way to share best practices, brainstorm new ideas, and start new collaborations.
