Loyola's Educational Technology Program Presents at Global Maker Day

On October 23, 2018, Irene Bal, lecturer in the Educational Technology program, along with students in the Educational Technology and Curriculum and Instruction for Social Justice graduate class, ET660: Digital Innovative Schools, had the opportunity for their class to present at Global Maker Day on YouTube Live. 

Global Maker Day is the chance for classrooms to connect virtually and watch makers discuss live about different projects, learning spaces, creations, coding, 3D designs, art lessons, and more. Participants can not only share their presentations, but take part in challenges that give classes the opportunity to solve problems and be creative. 

The students presented on Making Innovators: Creating a Culture of Innovation Through Makerspaces. The students showcased different research on makerspaces and hands-on and digital making opportunities to a global audience.
