EdTech’s Jackie Gerstein will offer two sessions at this summer’s ISTE conference in San Antonio.
Her first session is a pre-conference all-day workshop on Sunday. In A Framework for Maker Education: Frontloading and Reflecting on Maker Experiences (WF107), will learn that frameworks help ensure that for maker activities lead to meaningful learning. Educators who attend this premium workshop will directly experience frameworking by participating in several cycles of frontloading or framing the activities, doing maker activities, and reflecting on them using several types of technology-enhanced methods.

On the following day (Monday, June 26, 11:30 am–12:30 pm), Gerstein and colleague Barbara Bray will present on Design Thinking and Universal Design for Learning for Makerspaces, STEM, and STEAM.
This session provides practical strategies for teachers to redesign their classroom to encourage innovative activities around STEM and STEAM. In the process, teachers will learn how to encourage students’ voice and choice around the design and resources available for makerspace in their classroom.
