Surrey Centre: Mini-Maker Faire
An all-day workshop engaging educators and community in learning about maker pedagogy.
Maker pedagogy is a powerful educative approach that supports learning and knowing through experiences; it allows for the consideration of “curricular possibilities of asking students to design, create, adapt, or ethically hack (take apart for purposes of understanding) technological devices” (Bullock & Sator, 2015, p. 75).
The Surrey Centre Mini-Maker Faire Project will make connections amongst teachers, teacher candidates, parents, and students/children and bring together the maker in all of us. The aim of this project is to build community collaborations and capacity through Maker Pedagogy as a catalyst for supporting the engagement of design thinking and hands-on experiential activities as powerful learning.
