Ten Rules for Designing Effective “Maker" Learning

The “maker” movement has been touted as an antidote to many of today's challenges in education, but many educators don’t have a clear sense of how “maker” learning works. This session will also introduce participants to a central rationale for instituting “maker” learning.

When learners make, they hone important skills for analysis and discernment, developing the critical and creative skills necessary for solving real challenges and for engaging the world beyond school.
