LT staff and PhD students, Dr. Cassie Scharber, Lana Peterson, and Yu Hui Chang co-led a half-day Makerspace workshop for elementary teachers at Galtier Community School in St. Paul, MN. This LTML team co-led the workshop with Marc Patton, Galtier's technology integrationist.
"The day flew by!", one teacher shared during the final reflection with staff. Others reflected how the technology transformed them into students again as they tinkered and explored. The consensus was that having time to use the technology rather than sitting and "getting" professional development has made them more likely to use Makerspace concepts and tools within their classroom.
