Agency by Design
Build Sensitivity to Design Through Maker-Centered Practice
A Moonshot Institute Weekend Workshop
What are YOU going to make today? Educational initiatives that emphasize making, design, engineering, and tinkering are gaining traction in schools and organizations across the country. Featured presenter, researcher and author Jessica Ross from Harvard's Project Zero, will highlight the benefits for students of maker-centered learning. Participants will engage with thinking routines developed through the action research strand of the Agency by Design project and leave with takeaway strategies to enhance learning. Those who are familiar with or brand new to the ideas of the Maker Movement, maker-centered learning, and design-focused learning are all invited to attend.
