How the Maker Movement Is Moving into Classrooms | Vicki Davis | Edutopia.org

How the Maker Movement Is Moving into Classrooms | Vicki Davis | Edutopia.org | PBL Project Based Learning | Scoop.it

The Maker movement is a unique combination of artistry, circuitry, and old-fashioned craftsmanship. Certainly, learning by doing or "making" has been happening since our ancestors refined the wheel.

 

Don’t treat making as a sidebar to an already overtaxed curriculum. As you investigate the principles behind teaching STEAM via making, you'll see sound research from many educators throughout history, including Jean Piaget who, in 1973, wrote:

 

[S]tudents who are thus reputedly poor in mathematics show an entirely different attitude when the problem comes from a concrete situation and is related to other interests.

 

In 1972, Seymour Papert predicted what many complain is the state of today's apps and programs for modern students:

 

[T]he same old teaching becomes incredibly more expensive and biased toward its dumbest parts, namely the kind of rote learning in which measurable results can be obtained by treating the children like pigeons in a Skinner box.

 

Indeed, many of us go on first our first techno-rush as kids playing with erector sets, Legos, and the Radio Shack electronic kits. In a day when everyone thinks, "There's an app for that," many educators believe that we're missing the point of technology if we think its best use is programming kids to memorize math facts. Students don't want to use apps -- they want to make them.

 

Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager write, in Invent to Learn, a book that some call the "Maker in Education bible":

 

Maker classrooms are active classrooms. In active classrooms one will find engaged students, often working on multiple projects simultaneously, and teachers unafraid of relinquishing their authoritarian role. The best way to activate your classroom is for your classroom to make something.

 

A new generation of inventors is surfing the tide of the Maker movement. These classrooms emphasize making, inventing, and creativity. Let's look at the terminology and trends that will help educators understand the Maker movement.

The Long View | Chris Anderson Says the ‘Maker’ Movement is the Next Industrial Revolution

The Long View | Chris Anderson Says the ‘Maker’ Movement is the Next Industrial Revolution | PBL Project Based Learning | Scoop.it

Basically, the Maker movement is what happens when the Web meets the real world. It’s the combination of the Web’s innovation model with a new generation of computer-controlled desktop manufacturing tools that have a democratising impact, much like the PC and the Internet did a generation ago.
