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

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | 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."

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

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.

This is so cool looking and perfect for Middle School Students.

This is an interesting look at PBL. I certainly agree with the idea of a 'Maker' being the learner in the classroom.
