The ‘Maker Movement’: It’s About ‘Making’ Up Your Own Mind

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the maker movement? Is it only about ‘making with electronics’ and ‘coding’? No. I don’t believe it should be. ‘Making’ should focus on taking charge of, and building, your mind—your learning. Making objects and artifacts is a means to that end! ‘Making’ is at the heart of constructionism, tinkering and inquiry. In this session, we will explore how Seymour Papert’s thoughts have merged with other great educational theories and practices to provide rich, constructivist environments for today’s students.
