CEI | Tinkering: Playful Inquiry

09:00 am - 04/18/2018

@ Summit School

2100 Reynolda Rd
Winston-Salem NC  27106



Teachers, Community Members, and Parents: Join us for a professional development workshop in our making and tinkering spaces centered around tinkering - a process that marries play and inquiry. Bring back ideas you can use in just about any space and with students of ANY age.

Where and Why Tinkering?
Tinkering is simply a prepared environment with multiple materials where kids are inspired to dig deeper, try again, learn from failure, help each other, and create. Thinking becomes visible...ideas within our minds are able to be expressed in this playful and inspiring environment. Giving young people the tools and space to explore, create, experiment, and try again empowers them to believe in their ability to solve problems. Through experimentation and each small success, student competence develops and confidence grows.

Agenda
i. What is tinkering? What is not tinkering?
ii. Why tinkering? Merging play, inquiry, creativity, exploration
iii. The How: Spaces, materials, funding
iv. Lunch
iv. Tinkering in action: students and you
v. Tour of Tinkering, Inquiry, and Maker Spaces
