'Tis the season for some recycling. This was first published in 2011. How the social media has changed, and how it CAN continue to be disruptive in education, at all levels.


The challenge remains in keeping up with the latest that really is the greatest, but so much is simply "sound and fury, signifying nothing" (Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5).

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | Instructional Design for Teachers | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

This sounds remarkably similar to John Dewey who used the word reconstructing in describing real-world, concrete learning that can happen. This takes exceptional pedagogy and teaching in building  relationships with students.

june holley's curator insight, July 24, 7:29 AM

Maker activities are great examples of self-organizing and we can learn a lot from how Maker Movement organizes space to support people's self-organizing.

Yes, you can. To make it easier to print I put the post into PDF format.

Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

Dave Wood's curator insight, April 18, 3:41 PM

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.
