Where educators invent the future
"If this is what learning can feel like, surely we all deserve to learn this way."Rather than spend days listening to a series of speakers, CMK 2022 is about action. Attendees work on personally meaningful projects and interact with educational experts concerned with maximizing the potential of each learner. Animation, robotics, engineering, filmmaking, music composition, 3D printing, programming, wearable computing, Arduino, BBC micro:bits, microcontrollers, storytelling, and photography are all part of the CMK 2022 mix. The learning environment is filled with stimulating “objects to think with,” including a library, art supplies, and a mountain of tools & materials for tinkering. The setting for CMK 2022 is a state-of-the-art fabrication laboratory (fab lab), featuring a wealth of cutting-edge hardware including: 3D printers, lasercutters, CNC machines, programmable embroidery machines – all in a flexible learning environment perfect for mind-blowing project-based learning. Constructing Modern Knowledge, now celebrating its 15th anniversary, is a minds-on institute for educators committed to creativity, collaboration, and computing. Inspirational guest speakers and social events round out a fantastic event. See what makes Constructing Modern Knowledge unique by checking out the CMK wrap-up from a recent institute.
