The Differentiated Makerspace: Using Makerspaces with ELLs and Special Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will share our experiences working with English Language Learners and Special Education students in our high school library makerspace. Participants will acquire practical advice on creating a hands-on learning area with activities for students of all grade levels and abilities. These activities go across all areas of the curriculum, can be self-directed and promote an environment of collaboration and communication. Examples will be given of makerspace activities that promote confidence in special population students, something they often lack in other classes. Attendees will leave with strategies that they can incorporate to provide inclusive instruction through maker activities.
