Supercharge Learning


Literacy Based Makerspace Ideas!


MAME is your professional learning community, so get ready to sign up for the Spring Workshop!  We have partnered with tinkrLAB for a fun and hands on learning experience.

Join us to increase your knowledge and gather new tools to help you be a leader and creative integrator of educational technology and literacy.

Not only do we get to work with Melissa Rabideau, owner of tinkrLAB, at her store in the Meridian Mall; all participants will receive the ISTE book “Learning Supercharged: Digital Age Strategies and Insights from the Edtech Frontier.”

The book “Learning Supercharged" looks at emerging approaches and tools, and incorporates professional educators’ stories of how and why they have implemented each trend, including information on challenges faced and overcome, how to get started and other resources to explore..”  We will continue our learning together through a series of MAME led Twitter chats 4 times over the following 2 months.

Don’t delay, there is limited room for this workshop in a STEAM Learning Center.  You will go home with items you make at the workshop and lesson ideas to to use in your classrooms or libraries.
