ATLIS Webinar: A Tour of Makerspaces in Independent Schools

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of co-presenting with five other pioneering independent schools around the country through a webinar by the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS).

Last April, Krista and I had a successful conference deep dive workshop at ATLIS’ first conference in San Francisco. As this was a very popular topic among school today, ATLIS invited us to participate in this webinar. The goal of this webinar was to expand our workshop’s ideas by sharing each of our school’s experiences online, so other schools that are thinking and planning for their own spaces, can learn from our best practices and ideas.

We shared our unique design of the Unkefer Spark Studio as we intended it to be a natural extention of our Schools of the Sacred Heart’s Five Goals. We rooted our studio with over 200 years of Sacred Heart Tradition with today’s Digital Literacy & Design program here at Convent & Stuart Hall. I will be sharing the link to the webinar replay as soon as it becomes available. Below are the independent schools that particpated.
