Getting Started with the Maker Movement

Tinkering, crafting, active learning, MacGyver-ing, whatever you call it, a wave of creativity, collaboration and invention called the Maker Movement is revolutionizing education... but what exactly IS the Maker Movement and WHY should schools care?
 
Atomic Learning's own Kara Gann recently sat down with Sylvia Martinez, co-author of Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classsroom, a book that is often referred to as "the bible of the Maker Movement in schools," to address these questions. Interested in hearing what they had to say? We've recorded their discussion as an on-demand webinar archive which is part of the Education Eavesdrop webinar series!
 
If you already understand the basics of the Maker Movement, but aren't sure how to get started, Atomic Learning has a couple resources that are just right for you! Try our web design courses on CSS3, SQL and more, or check out our AutoCAD or Scratch Training
 
Atomic Learning also has some great classroom projects utilizing Geometer's Sketchpad® that not only help you get started with Maker Movement, but also fulfill state and Common Core State Standards!
Happy tinkering!
