My background is in education, so I’m always excited when I get run a workshop for teachers. Earlier this morning I had a chance to lead a workshop and conversation with 50 teachers from the Nord Anglia network of private schools, who have partnered with MIT Museum and the Cambridge Science Festival to think harder about STEAM education at various age levels.
I introduced a number of the activities I run, and the DataBasic.io suite. After each took a step back and asked participants to reflect on them as educators. This created some wonderful conversations about everything from building critical data thinking to the inspirations I draw from formal arts education. I look forward to chances to work with these teachers more!
Here’s a link the slides I used.
