This course’s official name is Computer Applications/Principles of Technology. These names describe courses already listed for our school district. They match what will be the content for a Maker course. I will be recording my experience as teacher of this course through this blog.
After talking pedagogy with Howard Rheingold this morning, I have begun to see this course as a process for both myself and the students. Some essential questions for me are: in my mind is
- How can I hand the responsibility for learning over to my students?
- How can I ensure that the students are interested in exploring, experimenting and learning?
