Kim Barrs from Taupaki School excites us as she talks about the Maker Culture, and name for the process of teachers and students working together to collaboratively problem solve.
In the holidays I joined a challenge called Ed blog, I did pretty well, but dipped out in the last week. I’ll use the phrase from my last blog, I have "not yet” achieved the standards I want of myself. I will though!
One of the educators I came across whilst blogging was Kim Barrs; talking about a maker culture. So exciting and so relevant to inquiry, flexible learning practice and collaboration. The power of this message is so strong, I do hope all our parents, teachers and students watch the You tube clip. The current theme at Taupo Primary is enterprise….this is so relevant and important. A compelling invitation for all of us to give students ownership of their learning; to take the lid off learning and set up an environment where our children can fly.Words and phrases jump out like
Engagement Potential Scary Authentic Student Control
Passion Big, crazy, complex ideas,
Flying by the seat of your pants!
Watch the clip. I am inspired by this
