Through our partnership, we have worked to:
To start, we are saying goodbye to the Maker Promise website and newsletter. Don’t worry! There will be some exciting announcements about our collaboration in October, so hurry up and stay in touch with us through the Maker Ed newsletter and Digital Promise Action Report, where you can still access resources and stories, connect with networks, and explore dynamic professional learning opportunities like virtual workshops and webinars.
An important part of this partnership has always been storytelling, and that won’t change. Since the Coronavirus has forced an opportunity to examine education and make big, critical changes, we’ve seen educators adapt their learning opportunities to fit the needs of their youth and this moment. From distributing materials for activities at home to how-to videos, there are many emergent ways making can support a shifting education landscape. We will continue to share stories like these to inspire more educators to bring hands-on learning to their youth, now, and always. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to nominate an educator or organization whose work we should amplify.
We look forward to continuing to connect and share with you all!
