Where does growth mindset and maker education meet? Jackie Gerstein had created a great visual (see above) that looks at areas where both of these concepts come together.

Would you agree that valuing effort is a part of growth mindset and maker education? How about failure being approached as interactive?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 26, 1:16 PM

We are almost 15 years into the 21st Century and the mantra remains  cliches like "jump into the 21st Century." Perhaps, that is part of the problem. Rather than paying attention to the concrete moments we are living in we are always focused on things we cannot control such as the future.

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through.

Inexpensive making in the classroom ~ ISTE

Inexpensive making in the classroom ~ ISTE | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

by Stephanie Grimes

 

"It seems like everywhere you go, someone is talking about the maker movement, making or people who are makers. You may also be hearing about making in the classroom and, as a teacher, wondering how you might bring making to your school....

 

"Maker education programs are cropping up in schools across the nation as the maker movement gains momentum. Making relies heavily on skills such as problem solving, innovative and creative thinking, and perseverance — and it promotes positive mindsets and attitudes. What could be better for our classrooms, schools and society than confident, determined, innovative youth? Making empowers youth and amazing things can happen when we get out of their way!"
