Summary

Enjoy a casual chat with the co-inventor of Makey Makey (Jay Silver) and Maker Enthusiast/Teacher Librarian (Colleen Graves) about the importance of Invention Literacy as a missing literacy in education. As Jay defines it, "Invention literacy is the ability to read and write human made stuff, from toasters to apps." We believe it is important to teach our students how the world works. In this core convo, we will discuss how to increase invention literacy on your campus by helping students "learn to read and write the world they live in."
