New Feature on Instructables: Teacher Notes Answered
We’re excited to announce a new feature to share your knowledge, and help to bring more making into classrooms all over the world: Teacher Notes!
Teacher Notes can be added to any instructable to show how it was used in the classroom. Educators can upload photos, lesson plans, and other resources to demonstrate their favorite ways to bring hands-on learning to their students.
A Teacher Note is much more than a comment you can leave on an Instructable because they are designed to provide valuable information for other educators about how an Instructable was used in a classroom setting. The Teacher Note editor has options for noting grade levels and subjects, as well as attaching resources such as Docs or PDFs of lesson plans, graphic organizers, or other classroom materials created to support students with the project.
Sharing a Teacher Note is an excellent way to connect with, learn from, and support other educators within the global Instructables Community.
Do you have an Instructable project you've used with your students? Did you create resources such as lesson plans or student handouts to go with a project you found on the site? Did you adapt parts of an instructable or use different materials to create a project for your students? If you’ve done any of these things, then you can create a Teacher Note and share how you incorporated that project into your classroom so other educators can do the same.
Have a project in mind and ready to post your first Teacher Note? To learn more about Teacher Notes and how they function, you can check out this handy tutorial: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Add-Teach...
If you have questions, feel free to ask them here. :)
