What is this course about:
“Analyze, make, and apply maker tech for teaching and learning contexts. Leverage the power of programming and tinker with digital and physical artifacts for learning/practicing/applying knowledge in science, technology, art, engineering, and mathematics (STEAM).”

In this course, you will

  • Explore and develop your own maker projects.
  • Utilize intuitive block-based programming tools to create games, science simulations, music instruments, art projects that interact with circuits, everyday objects, and hardware.
  • Experience computational thinking such as procedural abstraction and algorithmic thinking, and unleash your creativity while experimenting with hybrid projects of digital and physical objects.
  • Create instructional units that integrate your own maker projects for your context of teaching.
