Faculty and staff who want to get a first-hand, hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology are encouraged to register for MAKEiT, a new full-day education technology event held by Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT). The event will be held Oct. 5 at the Nittany Lion Inn on the University Park campus.
MAKEiT will be a different kind of technology event. As opposed to traditional session-driven events where attendees passively listen to a variety of speakers, MAKEiT features hands-on activities that focus on four rising technologies: 3D printing, the Internet of Things, learning spaces design, and rapid prototyping. Registration is free and includes lunch.
MAKEiT is about thinking collaboratively with colleagues and students, learning through making, and creating solutions yourself instead of relying on outside sources. To register and to learn more about MAKEiT (including information about each of the four featured technologies), please go to http://makeit.psu.edu/.
