Creating Conditions For Invention
"The role of the teacher is to create the conditions for invention rather than provide ready-made knowledge." ~ Seymour Papert
Birdville ISD is launching a makerspace initiative to promote a strong student-centered and interactive environment to provide exploratory and active learning experiences. Through the process of guided discovery learning activities, learners encounter real world scenarios incorporating Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) subjects, systems thinking, critical thinking, and design thinking. Students apply hands-on techniques to design, build, and create learning artifacts to share or publish to larger audiences. Birdville ISD is dedicated to developing innovative thinkers who explore, engage in risks, and identify solutions from past mistakes.
