Excited to have a great group of educations with us for The Maker Movement program at Ocracoke. The Maker Movement empowers colleagues to become inventors, engineers, and designers. A current trend in education uses the Maker mindset to encourage students of all ages to build, design, program, solve problems, collaborate, and innovate. These educators from across North Carolina learned to plan lessons that teach the Maker mindset and pull in content as diverse as engineering, reading, and math. In this hands-on session they explored how to use Maker activities in your classroom to promote learning, foster engagement, and build innovation. Thank you to all who were with us, especially one of our wonderful North Carolina Beginning Teachers of the Year Emilee Higdon of Macon County Schools, NC. Appreciate all who took part in this exciting work to impact students across North Carolina.
