As the festive season in Australia approaches, we’d like to wish all our teachers, students, supporters and partners a wonderfully relaxing and joyful holiday season.
If you’ve had a busy year like us, you’ll be looking forward to some time off to rest, reconnect with family and friends and to recharge your batteries.
This year, the Makers Empire learning team has been busy delivering professional development to teachers all over the world, presenting at conferences, designing curriculum, lesson plans and rubrics, creating new professional development courses, leading research studies into Makers Empire and helping to provide the teacher’s perspective in product development discussions.
At the same time, our tech and user experience teams have been working hard to improve the Makers Empire 3D design app and Teacher’s Dashboard. Our team members visit Makers Empire schools almost every week to test new and improved app features, to trial new workflows and processes and to observe student and teacher usage of Makers Empire. If you’re a teacher at a Makers Empire school we consider you a valued partner and stakeholder – your feedback is absolutely invaluable to us.
Meanwhile, our business team has been flat out exploring new business opportunities, trialling ways to improve our processes, promoting and sharing school case studies and teacher interviews, and making sure that we’re on track to fulfil our company mission, goals and KPIs.
Below we’ve highlighted some of Makers Empire’s key dates and achievements in 2019. Simply click on the story heading or image to learn more.
Thank you to all our wonderful board members, ambassadors, teachers, student designers, supporters and partners. We’re proud to be working with you to create more awesome learning experiences for students in 2020 and beyond!
