Target Audience: STEM/Technology 3rd-8th Grade Teachers
This training will focus on turning ordinary classroom learning into extraordinary learning experiences through design thinking and 3D modeling. During the training, participants will practice design thinking using a free, web-based computer aided design (CAD) program that is appropriate for students in 3rd-8th grades. The goal of the training is to provide teachers with extended learning and assessment opportunities they may add to existing lesson plans.
Participants should create a teacher account at Tinkercad.com prior to the training. Teachers should also bring 2-3 lessons to which they would like to add increased student engagement, inquiry, and problem-solving and/or project or performance-based assessments.
