PROJECT SLICE: Blanketed With Love
1 DAY WORKSHOP
AN IMMERSIVE experience where teachers get to experience high-quality PBL first-hand.
Slices start with a provocative entry event on intriguing design challenges and end the day with an exhibition, complete with presentations of learning with educators products in-hand.
Along the way, participants respond to powerful focusing questions. They experience high-quality, formative assessments with use of protocols for drafting, critique and revision. They will experience non-linear and personalized construction of knowledge first-hand.
Highly interactive by design, this workshop balances work-time with engaging didactics, activities, facilitated discussions, protocols, and iterative development in order to deepen understanding of the fundamentals of Project-Based Learning. Teachers will apply a design process to ideate a Project-Based Learning experience to use in the classroom.
The training results in the ideation of a usable, peer-reviewed Project-Based unit participants can implement in their classrooms.
BLANKETED WITH LOVE
Personal narratives and geometric art meet to offer an interactive experience rooted in love. You will explore loving relationships from the eyes of a child while investigating the question; how can
we spread love to children who have less?
Join us to depict your love story on fabric. You will use shapes to create your representation on a blanket meant for Project Linus, an organization that distributes blankets to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. No formal background in art or fabric work is necessary to do this slice.
We will share our love stories by presenting our blankets at an exhibition and to an audience
at the end of the day.
