Fabrice Florin gave a talk about our Maker Art classes at the 2017 Maker Faire in San Mateo.
In our Maker Art classes, we invite children to create magical worlds together, combining art, technology and storytelling. Our students get really engaged in the process, which helps them develop their creative, problem-solving and social skills. This is what school should be like: project-based, hands-on, student-driven and collaborative.
I shared what we learned in a 20 minute presentation on Sunday, May 21, at 10:30am, in the MAKE: Education stage (Zone 7) at the San Mateo Event Center.
The presentation was well received by a great group of teachers, parents and kids. I connected with several librarians and teachers interested in teaching Maker Art in their communities. And one mom reached out to me afterwards to say this was the best talk she heard this year.
