More Than a Display: Installations that inspire collaborative learning

Thursday, March 30, 2017

9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Inspired by the installations and displays of the Art Studio, this PD workshop will explore ways to incorporate collaborative and interactive displays into your learning environment. We will reflect on how displays can capture student learning, extend on that learning and encourage collaboration. This workshop is designed to explore frameworks connected to project-based learning, as well as give educators hands-on time with materials. The workshop will also address time-management, resourcing and cost issues as related to the creation of effective and exciting displays.
