How the Maker Movement is Transforming Education - We Are Teachers

How the Maker Movement is Transforming Education - We Are Teachers | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"The Maker Movement, a technological and creative learning revolution underway around the globe, has exciting and vast implications for the world of education. New tools and technology, such as 3D printing, robotics, microprocessors, wearable computing, e-textiles, “smart” materials, and programming languages are being invented at an unprecedented pace. The Maker Movement creates affordable or even free versions of these inventions, while sharing tools and ideas online to create a vibrant, collaborative community of global problem-solvers."

Great models and examples for elementary, middle school and high school applied learning.

Gord Holden's curator insight, January 3, 7:36 AM

While many virtual environments have incredibly upside for role-play and immersive learning, Minecraft epitomizes a vital ingredient for so many children, the role of "making." I think there's an instinctual need to do so. Perhaps it's even what best defines us as humans from other species. And so, a vital aspect of all the platforms I use with Heritage Christian Online School is that they have a readily usable building aspect to them. Even with Unity3D, there will be Art courses preparing the students to be creating with it. My New Year resolution. : )

This is what I have been researching over the break - the Maker Movement and how we can use materials and ideas to problem-solve and invent. I am convinced this is one of the primary ways in which we can really teach students relevant content and to encourage creativity.

The Smart Way to Use iPads in the Classroom | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Touch-screen tablets for young students have become all the rage. Some districts are even buying iPads for every kindergartner, a move sparking both celebration and consternation. Do we really want to give $500 devices to kids who can’t even tie their shoes? What are these schools doing with these devices,...

Makers Are Radically Changing the World...Already | Forbes.com

Makers Are Radically Changing the World...Already | Forbes.com | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Driven by the exponentially increasing power, ease of use and reduced costs of “making,” along with a renewed interest in experiencing making, the Maker Movement is beginning to have a surprising impact in the US and around the world.

 

How, one might ask, does this Maker Movement, emerging out of the left coast, with its eclectic “Maker Faires,” change the world in a meaningful way?

 

Though a more complex topic, the Maker Movement can be reduced to this simple reality: it is democratizing making. Sure, making includes simple electronics, quilting, all the handmade things one can buy on ETSY.com or download from Thingiverse.com and print on a home 3D printer … but it also includes creating access to industrial manufacturing tools used to prototype and manufacture world class innovations.

 

As the CEO of TechShop and author of The Maker Movement Manifesto, I sit at the apex of activity that is not only creating interesting art, t-shirts, bracelets and other small personally produced items one might see at a typical swap meet, but I have seen the development of many new products that have begun to change the world. Each of them was started because of cheap access to the powerful tools of the industrial revolution combined with a platform (makerspace) designed to encourage their success.

 

Briefly, a very well equipped makerspace, like TechShop, has all the tools you need to make almost anything in the world. These include 3D printers, laser cutters, mills, lathes, computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines, a complete metal shop, wood shop, plastics and electronics labs, textiles lab and the space, training, and environment designed to enable you to make whatever you want.
