Creating Project Based Learning Environments Through Makerspaces
In the Ventura USD in California, one low achieving middle school at risk of closure was instead transformed into the De Anza Academy of Technology and the Arts (DATA), a high achieving magnet school. A significant component in DATA’s dramatic turnaround has been its innovative project based and collaborative learning environments and makerspaces, which employ technology as a central component.
Attend this web seminar to learn more about how the leadership of DATA is utilizing technology in innovative ways to create project based learning environments through makerspaces, as well as some strategies for doing the same in any school or district.
