Feedback form is now closed.
Go beyond the computer screen, and engage learners in many modalities of technological creation. In this workshop, participants will experiment with a range of tools and techniques for creating multi-sensory learning experiences which incorporate artmaking and technology. We’ll create with light, sound, textures, motion, scale, electronics, and code - and learn the practicalities of cost and creation in the classroom. As a group, we’ll reflect on our explorations and discuss connections across subject areas. You’ll walk away with new ideas and learning resources to use in your classroom. Join us!

This workshop is facilitated by artist-educators from the MIT Media Lab, the Scratch Team, and the Fab Foundation.
