Authentic Learning = Makerspace
with Michelle Jensen, CEO, Michelle Jensen-Education


[Note: As we are now in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone.]


Over the past four years Michelle Jensen has been developing a curriculum around making providing authentic transferable learning experiences for her students.


This was not enough, so after a transformative visit to Nepal in June 2016 she decided to develop a solution that would be scalable globally; one that focused on simple robotics and coding. With automation of most low level jobs we need to prepare our students. Michelle has a team of engineers and programmers working with her to develop authentic learning experience that provide students with transferable skills needed for an automated world.


Outcomes for attendee:

  • Action plan to prepare their students for an automated world
  • Understanding of simple robotics
  • Understanding of coding
  • Inspiration to make change

Michelle Jensen opened a MakerSpace in Rockdale to provide workshops to teachers and students as well as consulting with schools and associations to develop authentic transferable learning experiments for students.


For all Australian States and Territories:
