How do we create spaces that inspire learning through making?
Maker-centered learning occurs in special classes, like Science, STEM, Innovation Time, Tinkering Time and Maker Spaces just to name a few. In these spaces, students discover their own passions, learn to learn from failure, become self-directed learners empowered to make change in their own worlds. The element of choice and voice is key to students maximizing their experience in maker-centered spaces only to return to core classrooms where they are expected to reach grade-level competencies in academic subjects.
