Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered | Inclusive Education NZ | Scoop.it

"Maker education, when planned around skills acquisition, can enhance social-emotional development.

Self-Awareness: Making in all its forms requires a full range of skills including cognitive, physical, and affective skills. Given this need for multiple and diverse skill set, effective and successful making comes from an accurate assessment of one’s strengths and limitations as well as having optimism and confidence that challenges can be overcome within the making process. Example questions related to self-awareness and making include:

     * What strategies am I using to increase my awareness of my emotions and how they influence my performance during the making-related tasks?

     * What are my strengths given this particular making task?

     * What are my limitations and how can I use my strengths to overcome them? ..."

The Maker Movement has all kinds of utility for rigorous academic learning. I had honestly not considered the social learning that it supports!

This this post includes an infographic which summarises areas where students can gain self-awareness when involved in maker projects in the classroom. While the piece focuses on maker education in the school classroom it's also applicable to higher education. The areas of social-emotional development highlighted here resonate with the ones we've seen students identify in their reflective blogs when we run our Doctor as Digital Teacher SSC where they design and develop a digital learning resource.

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do - User Generated Education | Inclusive Education NZ | Scoop.it
This morning I was thinking about the things that all young people should know how to do regardless of income, geographical location, life goals, etc.  I started a list – see below.  Some have “always” been true – some are unique to this century of learning.  Let me know of any other universal skills you believe young people should know how to do.

Samantha G. Daley is a research scientist at CAST, where she investigates the relationship between emotions and cognitive performance of students, particularly those with learning disabilities. She focuses on the role of emotions in learning activities and how to design instruction to reflect the relationship between emotion and cognition in learning.
