IUMakes: Maker Ed panel / Maker portfolios
--- SAVE THE DATE ---
Hi IU Makes community!
In context of the movements around the development of portfolio practices and tools for Makers of all ages, IUMakes is hosting a panel on Maker portfolios. The panel will feature a number of national guest speakers including:
Paloma Garcia-Lopez, Maker Education Initiative. "Maker Ed’s mission is to create more opportunities for young people to develop confidence, creativity, and spark an interest in science, technology, engineering, math, the arts, and learning as a whole through making."
Andrew Sliwinski, DIY.org. At DIY.org "every member has their own portfolio where they share what they make and do, and earn embroidered skill patches for completing sets of challenges."
Jessica Ross, Agency by Design/Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education. "What does it mean to see the world like a designer? What is “maker thinking?” What kinds of thinking dispositions characterize a tinkerer? These are some of the questions at the heart of the Agency by Design project, a multi-year research and development initiative at Project Zero, a research organization at the Harvard Graduate School of Education."
Marcells Klein Williams, California STEM Learning Network. Marcella has been instrumental in the creation and launch of the Power of Discovery: STEM2 Initiative that is mobilizing a broad coalition of stakeholders working together to deliver high-quality STEM learning during the critical out-of-school time hours.
Bob Lenz, Envision Schools. "Our mission is to transform the lives of students – especially those who will be the first in their family to attend college – by preparing them for success in college, in careers, and in life."
The panel will present work on the Open Portfolio Project, a project in partnership with Indiana University that aims to develop a common set of practices for portfolio creation, reflection, sharing, assessment, and technology solutions to create an open, decentralized, and distributed lifetime portfolio system for makers.
Participants are warmly invited to ask questions in the discussion part of the panel, following the presentations! Additional panelist will be announced as their participation has been confirmed.
