The ongoing Maker Revolution enriches Makerspaces with innovative technology. Since evolving from community hobbyist spaces to Makerspaces in schools and libraries, MakerEd has vast implications for 21st century education. Resonating with children’s natural stage of discovery and powered by pedagogy of active learning, growth mindset and experiential education, MakerEd strengthens student-centered teaching practices, increases engagement and ownership in learning, and provides an outlet for students to join the vibrant global community of problem solvers.
In this presentation, we will discuss various types of Maker spaces, look at potent ways to incorporate MakerEd into classrooms through Tech Bundle customization, Mobile Makerspaces, Try First approach, and partnership in professional development, and analyze some successful MakerEd programs.
