Learning to make and create can be a challenge but hundreds of educators took the challenge. Aaron Maurer talks about the 25 days of making and some upcoming projects for student making that will be kicking off soon. You’ll find some fun ideas and in the end, they actually ended up with 30 projects you can create. This will be an awesome resource for those who want to tinker during spring break or this summer!

Today’s Sponsor: Metaverse is a powerful augmented reality app. They have a new classroom management tool called Collections. These let the teacher:

  • View all student experiences in one place
  • Edit and View Experiences in one place
  • Share Student Experiences as a group

Metaverse is free for teachers and students to create as many AR experiences as you want. The new classroom management features in Metaverse are free to try with promo code ARforEDU. You can use these features after your free trial for a $7 a month fee. My students are making apps in Metaverse. Try it out today!
