We are excited to support the innovative teaching of Sharon Middle School technology teacher Cathy Collins with an Isa Zimmerman-MASCD Technology Integration & Innovation Mini- Grant. Cathy provided a wonderful vision of innovative teaching in her application: “Innovative teaching means reaching beyond traditional methods of instruction, materials and teaching strategies to fully engage students.” The grant will support her plan to engage her seventh grade students in learning 3D printing and design thinking skills. Cathy will complete MakerBot’s certification program for educators, and then she will incorporate it into her curriculum and lead her students through their learning with MakerBot’s certification program for students. We look forward to hearing from Cathy at the end of the year about the students’ experiences – and maybe seeing photos of some 3D printing creations.
