Beginning Teachers’ Conference




Make Me a Maker – Fostering a Maker Mentality in Your School Had lots of hands on ideas. Set aside time for questions at the end, this was valuable because this was the area I feel most people learnt from the most. Great!
Alison is not only an amazing teacher but also incredibly inspiring! Such a great session on maker spaces.
Very hands on and informative. Great presentation.
Absolutely loved this workshop! Even better was the timing it was offered at. It was such a great and positive way to start my day. Gave me so many ideas and I am already going to do some of the activities we did with my class this week. She brought in so many personal stories with her own classes that it helped to understand what a maker means and how easily we can implement into our classrooms. Definitely a must for next year.
Great presenter who was enthusiastic and provided lots of hands on ideas
Great hands on and team work building applications. Great ideas to bring to the classroom.
Gave some good resources and ideas. Liked that we moved and did activities.
