The Makey Makey Certified Educator Workshop is a fun, hands-on, 3-hour virtual experience during which you’ll learn how to teach Invention Literacy, Making, and Design Thinking using the award winning Makey Makey invention kit.
In this one-day (3-hour) workshop you’ll explore ways to incorporate Makey Makey into your classroom activities beyond building a banana piano. You'll draw circuits, build pressure sensitive switches from cardboard, and discover the many ways Makey Makey can be applied to learning a wide range of subjects. Together we’ll learn and share best practices for teaching students how to invent with Makey Makey in and outside the classroom setting. You’ll do all of this in a supportive and energized virtual learning environment with fellow educators from all over the world.
