The course is split into two sections, the first half focusing on each individual's design skills with a new design challenge each week. Then the last 5 weeks will be focused on creating a larger project such as a space station, moon base, city, or zoo. We will discuss the...

Mary-Ellen Fimbel has been teaching elementary school for over a decade and is experienced in working with learners of all ages through her work in the community and online. In addition to holding a Texas State Teaching license, she is an advocate of Self-Directed and learner-centered educational models. Mrs. Fimbel presented to the Texas Computer Teachers Association in 2020 about utilizing TinkerCAD in the classroom.
Homework will consist of learners finishing their projects or using their new skills to continue creating. In the second half of the project, some time may be needed to research portions of their builds but this will vary by student.
Learners will need to create an account at TinkerCAD.com before the course starts. There is a verification for learners under 13 this can take between 24 hours and 3 weeks depending on where you live. If you need a temporary account for the first week please message me before the first class so I can set it up. Temporary accounts will be deleted every 3- 6 months. TinkerCAD is COPPA Compliant resource see this article for more information: https://blog.tinkercad.com/2013/07/30/whats-up-with-education-accounts. If a temporary account is needed while waiting for a parent-approved account for kids under 13 please message me for information. These temporary accounts will be deleted without notice frequently to ensure student safety and to comply with Outschool standards.
The teacher will encourage learners to share their builds each week for causal feedback from the teacher. Additionally, we will use the Harvard Protocol "I think, I notice, I wonder, I value" while giving group feedback to support constructive feedback and comradery.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The building topics in this class are very open-ended. This means that learners are welcome to interpret them as they please. Please talk with your learners about what to do if another student builds something you find uncomfortable such as; paintball courses, religious items, magical scenes, or orphanages. I am experienced in handling the discussion of these delicate topics but I err on the side of letting students discuss things as long as they are being respectful. If you have any concerns about this please message me before enrolling.
Learners will need a personal account TinkerCAD.com You must create an account before the course starts.
