While the Maker Movement is fuelled in part by new tools, technologies, and online communities available to today’s makers, its simultaneous emphasis on engaging the world through design and sharing with others harkens back to early educational predecessors including Froebel, Dewey, Montessori, and Papert.
This pack includes practical takeaways for educators, researchers, and parents and also illustrates the five key STEM literacies—identifying, organizing, and integrating information; creating and traversing representations; communicating with others for help and feedback during making; documenting processes; and communicating finished products—and demonstrates how these literacies intersect with making communities.
The Makerspace Pack includes:
