Learning About Young Makers - User Generated Education @Jackie Gerstein

Learning About Young Makers - User Generated Education @Jackie Gerstein | Web Stuff | Scoop.it
I am a huge proponent of using hands-on, interactive learning activities to explore ill-defined problems as a way of teaching for all age groups. Given the spontaneity and uncertainty of these types of active learning environments, I believe educators should observe, reflect on, and analyze how learners interact with the materials, the content, the educator, and the other learners. This practice is in line with the teacher as ethnographer.

In my role as a teacher as ethnographer, I made some initial observations during my first two weeks of teaching maker education for elementary age students. With half the kids under 7, I learned a bunch about young makers.

H.March's insight:

“I can’t do this.” is often a sign or signal of frustration and should not be brushed off by parents/teachers. Kids need to be in an environment that allows them to persevere and work at the problem  even multiple times, until they themselves find the solution.  The lesson they will learn is that effort will often produce positive results.

Great insights. One that we never think about - kids like to stand while tinkering and making things. They don't like to be tethered to a chair.

Wonderful insights that all educators need to understand.

Teacher issues - I chose this resource because I feel that more teachers need to incorporate hands on learning in their lessons and spend more time observing how their students learn.  I hope this resource would encourage more teachers to allow their students to be more involved in their learning.

Videos are a great way to "test" knowledge - so this tool is a useful one for teachers
