Students retain less than 10% of what they read alone, but 75% of what they practice by doing. The idea of a “makerspace” has captured imaginations as we consider how we enable student learning through creative projects. In this research-driven session, Kevin Baird (Chairman, non-profit Center for College & Career Readiness) leads us to understand the core elements of creativity and how we can provide students with rigorous, powerful learning experiences through lens of a literacy makerspace.
