Moving is never easy…unless you’re going to a totally epic new website! That’s right!! The Adjusting Course blog has officially moved and you’re invited to come with us.
Actually…wait a second. All you need to do is “subscribe here” and we’ll deliver relevant blog posts directly to you in the comfort of your nest (or e-mail inbox).
The newest post is waiting for you right now, and subscribing takes about 7 seconds…unless you type really fast. Then it might only take 6 seconds.
We’ll see you at our new digs. You’ll be glad you joined us!
The entire concept is really quite simple. The Mobile MakerSpace carts that line the hallway leading into our Media Center are capable of transporting new opportunities and tools to virtually any space in our school. Whether it’s high-tech 3D printing and modular robotics or low-tech knitting and plastic construction blocks…the carts contain tools that elicit collaboration and unleash student creativity.
When coupled with our amazing team of teachers the impact is quite profound.
Our teachers continue to integrate collaboration, creativity, and ‘making’ into the student learning experience in a variety of ways. In addition to our Mobile MakerSpace Fleet, new instructional approaches like Genius Hour, flipped instruction, connected learning, and math workshop contribute to a relevant pedagogy. Best practices in literacy instruction, assessment, and classroom discussions further contribute to meaningful learning experiences. Staff are engaged in a variety of passions that contribute to a culture of learning and innovative school ethos.
The time, energy, and learning that our team invests into reinventing themselves for kids each year is nothing short of inspiring.
We continue to expand upon student opportunities based on input from our students and staff. This year we’re adding another five or six carts that students will have access to. Be sure to watch the short video in this blog post to see how our Mobile MakerSpaces work.
Finally, stay tuned for a unique opportunity for YOUR students to design and propose our next Mobile MakerSpace cart! It’s going to be AWESOME!
Exciting news…this past week I learned that my principal’s blog called “Adjusting Course” was named a finalist for “Best Administrator Blog” as part of the annual Edublog Awards.
You can vote for my blog “Adjusting Course” by clicking on the link below. Then click the tiny up arrow near “Adjusting Course” to add a vote. (Voting is being done via Listly, so you will be directed to register which takes 30 seconds.)
I think this is kind of cool, and also know a couple other administrators that were nominated. You can vote for more than one finalist, so be sure to check out the blogs that Jimmy Casas and Tony Sinanis write…I am inspired by them on a regular basis and encourage you to support them too.
Thanks for your support!
