We'll be working together a lot this week, so let's get to know each other as we do so. Facilitators Rik Eberhardt from the MIT Game Lab and Carole Urbano from the Education Arcade will run our participants through some fun exercises to understand our shared backgrounds and capabilities.
10:00 Unconference: What's next after SEPT? How will I translate this experience into the classroom? Can I do more to bring girls into STEM? Where do I find expertise on makerspaces? Who are all these amazing teachers?... These are examples of questions that you can pose during the final hours of your MIT experience. Collectively, we'll decide where the conversation goes next - both during the morning's break-out discussions and in the long-term.
