The Digital Harbor Foundation (DHF) has finalized its spring and summer Educator Workshops schedule!
DHF’s Maker Workshops for Educators are designed to introduce educators to emerging technologies so that they can help their students to be creators, and not just consumers. The knowledge gained in the workshops can be applied to a variety of age groups and across content areas from math and science, to english and technology. Teach storytelling and entry level coding after Interactive Games for Educators, learn how to collect and analyze data about the surrounding world using simple electronics and networks in Internet of Things (IoT) for Educators or help your students visualize and start making in three dimensions (and bring home a 3D printer for your school) in 3D Printing for Educators*. Prepare your students for a creative, technical world, and have fun learning how to do it! Workshops generally take place Friday evening and Saturday during the school year, and are held mid-week during the summer.
