Integrating Maker Culture Into Your School Or Classroom With An Indigenous Worldview OFFSITE - Telus World of Science
In this session we will be focusing on the scheduling, implementation, assessment, and the benefits and challenges of Nusdeh Yoh’s makerspace. We will define maker culture at Nusdeh Yoh and how it differs from makerspace. We’ll also provide an overview of our projects and how we integrate traditional knowledge to create culturally relevant projects. We will present strategies and exemplars that show how to integrate maker culture school-wide and in the K-7 classroom. We will also provide some starter examples of how it can apply in a high school setting.
