With 1:1 devices and technology integration growing rapidly through the K-12 education space, initiatives follow that aim to maximize digital learning environments and create hands-on learning for students. One of the fastest-growing initiatives right now is the Maker Movement, which emphasizes learning through doing in social environments and increases access to STEAM curriculum. We’ve partnered with Chris Smallen, Chief Technology Office at Lenior City Schools for our upcoming webinar: Full STEAM Ahead into the Maker Movement on Wednesday, November 20th at 12:30 p.m. ET to talk about how his district has implemented Makerspaces, and how other schools and districts can implement similar programs.
Chris Smallen is an experienced CTO who has implemented various initiatives pertaining to technology integration at Lenoir City Schools. Having particular expertise in the Maker Movement, Chris has presented on the topic a number of times for fellow educators. As a CTO, Chris has a unique perspective into Makerspaces as he has taken part in the beginning stages, resource and budget acquisition, and evaluating the initiative once implemented.
