Ep. 35: Sylvia and Tinkering

Happy New Year! In the first episode of a two part FETC series, I chat with Sylvia Martinez, co-author of Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom. We discuss the importance of tinkering in the classroom, her presentations at FETC, and food. Make sure you follow Sylvia on Twitter and check out her books. If you are planning on attending FETC, check out her sessions and chat with her afterwards.

As an added bonus, I’ll be giving away a physical copy of Sylvia’s latest book Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom to a lucky listener. To enter, all you have to do is send a tweet out about the podcast with the #edtechbites and make sure to tag both Sylvia and myself. At the end of the month, I’ll randomly choose a winner and send them a copy of the book.
