If you are looking for some summer fun, consider CLMOOC, a highly flexible online collaboration of educators exploring Connected Learning and maker education. If you’ve heard about maker ed but aren’t quite sure what it is, this is a great way to experience it firsthand.
CLMOOC takes place June 18–August 2, 2015 and includes six week-long iterative make cycles. You can sign up to get updates here. It is designed to be a collaboration rather than a course to which educators are invited to come in and participate during any or all cycles — the best way to engage is to sign up to receive the newsletter and jump in whenever you have time and interest.
I’ve also been brainstorming what might go into a great “maker box” for classrooms here. Add your thoughts!
