Maker Education – How to Do Better
Nobody's perfect. And after the last few challenging years, it can be harder than ever to create amazing maker education experiences for our young learners. In this session, we'll identify some of the most common ways many maker programs struggle — "keychain syndrome," program pacing problems, making space for all learners, failing forward in meaningful ways, and developing authentic assessments. Then we'll discuss best practices, current research, and pedagogical approaches, as we share ideas to overcome these and other challenges in both formal and informal makerspace classrooms.
