Effective Instructional Approaches in Alternative Settings

  • 3D Printing. Provide students access to a 3D printer. Some juvenile justice facilities have sold holiday ornaments made with the 3D printers!
  • Mystery Skype. Invite experts to talk with your class via Skype.
  • Coding and Programming. Encourage students to code through programs like Hour of Code or by teaching JavaScript and Karel, which allows for creative problem solving.  
  • Makerspace. Creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn and often include a 3D printer. Learn more at: http://spaces.makerspace.com/
