Some of us have already landed in San Antonio and the rest of the Eduporium team is flying in at various times on Sunday! We’re spending most of the day tomorrow getting our brand new booth (No. 1763) ready to showcase and putting the finishing touches on our display. If you’re so inclined to come visit us during our three days at ISTE, we would certainly welcome everyone, especially teachers, librarians, administrators, and makerspace leaders! If you need some more convincing, here are some extra incentives for you to drop by our interactive booth!
You didn't forget about our daily trivia contest, did you? With one quick sign-up, you could have the opportunity to win $100 worth of STEM, maker, and PBL tools to help revamp your classroom, library, or makerspace (or make it pop even more)!
For this week’s experiment, we’re going to be taking a look at the newest of the brand new EdTech tools we have in our store. Developed and manufactured in France, Marbotic is an interactive way for early learners to get familiar with numbers, letters, and technology. So far, they’ve created three different kits and we were lucky enough to receive them in our office just in time for this week’s Eduporium Experiment! We decided to focus on the Marbotic Bundle for this post, which includes both Smart Letters and Smart Numbers.
What are some of the things you think of when you think of maker education? MakerEd includes everything from informal constructive play with everyday objects, glue, and tape to large-scale 3D printing and digital fabrication. Modern makerspaces and fab labs have become the place to be for creative-minded students to showcase their making talents and thousands of schools have responded by building in-house areas for making. As maker education continues to evolve, so too do the tools, the mindsets, and the finished products students are creating. So, what makes modern maker education such a powerful force in K-12 education and beyond?
