I think I'd have the students in my class, become students of basic Maker tools, so then they could teach basic Maker intro classes from Middle school to Higher Ed. So we'd actually make projects ourselves that we could then use to teach.On Tue, Dec 3, 2013 at 11:02 AM, Deb Jiloty <[log in to unmask]> wrote:

Subject: Intro to Maker class?
Anyone interested in an Intro to Maker class? I studied it at NYU's ITP program and I'm inchin' to teach it. I'm thinkin'
- 3 grad credits
- Pico Cricket boards interfacing with Scratch.com
- Arduino/breadboard basics
- Tinkercad to 3D printing.
- Appropriate academic readings.Now, this could be in person via an intensive, or blended, or all online. Online is doable since all the basic kits come with directions that are amazing nowadays. The class would have students document their work and use the class as a support group.
The cost of a basic Maker fablab is about the same cost as one Smartboard after all...
