Saturday November 5th, Aaron Graves and I will be signing our Big Book of Makerspace Projects at the Lincoln Park Barnes and Noble at 5:00 pm. Come out and have us sign your copy of your book and enjoy the mini-maker faire at B&N too! We’d love to meet you and talk about making stuff!
I’m also excited to announce that I’ll be joining Jay Silver in Austin this spring and leading a Core Convo around Invention Literacy at SXSWedu! See our session info here! And if you haven’t read up on Invention Literacy, read Jay’s original article that changed the way I view making in our makerspace. Then read up on how I used this concept to collaborate with an awesome teacher at my school in post one, two, and three of my three part series on Invention Literacy!
Plus, I’ll be speaking about this maker-focused PBL at the National Writing Project and other ways of incorporating making and literacy and collaborating with teachers! Can’t wait to see old friends and make new ones! (I was a writing project member in 2005, an avid teacher consultant for many years and used to annually attend this conference, so I’m stoked they invited me to speak at this one!)
