Technology can be designed and used for education in myriad ways, but when we design ed tech and tech-supported curriculum, we want to make sure it’s really doing something valuable and worthwhile to improve learning experiences. This is an area the MIT Education Arcade has been working in for over a decade, with our design, implementation, and research projects. If you have an ed tech project you are working on and would like to get feedback or take it to the next level, this mini design studio is for you!
We will provide support and guidance in terms of pedagogy, activity design, the design and development process, technical challenges, etc. Both experts and your peers will give feedback on the parts of your work that are innovative and exciting, point out weaknesses and elements that don’t work yet, and help brainstorm ways to improve the project. It doesn’t matter if you are working on videos, content creation platforms, learning games, curriculum design, hardware, etc., or what stage of the process your project is at. We are here to help you move your technology and pedagogy ideas forward at any stage, to enable you to improve education in your own way.
Participants are welcome to attend one or both workshop sessions, and are requested to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, but are still welcome even without advance notice.
