Making in education connects educators around the world in a quest to make education more authentic and relevant. We stand on the shoulders of giants who articulated new understandings of what learning could be and new ways to explore powerful ideas. In the present, we strive to deepen our commitment to provide authentic learning opportunities for all young people. We look into the future to see what the children in today’s classrooms will experience, and support them as they become changemakers and global citizens.
In this time of uncertainty and disruption, many educators see opportunity to remake education. As we try to get back to “normal” we should be asking what parts of normal should we keep and what can we leave behind. The ideals of project based learning and making in education can support a vision of an educational future that is equitable and student-centered, even through disruption.
Together, let’s explore the past, present, and future of making in education so that we can equip children with the tools and mindset to solve the challenges of the future, and make the world a better place for all.
