Learning by doing inspires students to explore, investigate and create. By embracing the maker movement, educators can tap into their students’ natural inclinations, allowing them to develop critical STEAM skills as well as an agile and resilient mind.
Making means many things to many people and, as we know - it can and does happen in more than one part of our lives. So, along with the work we do in terms of informal learning and supporting maker spaces, tech shops, Makers/hobbyists, Intel is also working to bring the learnings from the maker movement to young learners – to the tinkerers & makers - but in the context of the K-12 classroom.
We aim to bring together the essentials to help educators adopt “Making” into their schools and classrooms. Partnering with Arduino, Intel developed the Arduino 101 learning board. Powered by the Intel® Curie™ Module, Arduino 101 makes it easy for students to bring their ideas to life while learning about technology, naturally. We also know that a maker board alone is not sufficient to get started with maker projects so, we are working with our ecosystem partners to bring educational maker kits to market. Additionally, to help inspire making in the classroom, we are building a collection of projects developed by our Intel® Education visionaries from around the world.
We want to help you bring the best of the maker movement to your classroom. Learn more about the Arduino/Genuino 101 board, maker kits and lessons at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/education/maker-resources-for-educators.html
