DIGGING INTO DINOSAURS AND TECHNOLOGY
Maker-centered learning empowers learners to develop the capacities necessary to embody the disposition of systems thinking. A key goal of maker-centered learning is to help young people feel empowered to build and shape their worlds. Acquiring this sense of maker empowerment is strongly supported by learning to notice and having a sensitivity to design. This sensitivity is developed in students as they are engaged in looking closely, reflecting on the design of objects and systems, exploring the complexity of design and understanding themselves as designers and innovators.
Innovation, invention, prosumerism and creativity are key words within this movement. Some recent works have dug into the socio/intelectual potentials and the individual and collective learning opportunities fostered by making (Gauntlett, 2011).
Join us to these special sessions where we will look at three maker-centered learning and how it can be promoted through our teaching. All sessions will be delivered via Zoom.
