While this presentation will explore the virtues of learning-by-making and its theoretical and historical contexts, we will discuss the structural changes necessary to for schools to gain benefit from the maker movement. We must recognize that making is not new, but may still become a short-term fad without a coherent constructive educational vision having little to do with the construction of a “space.” The roles of expertise, continuous growth, prompt setting, project development, and curricular design to create the conditions necessary for sustaining and learning from making. The presenter is the co-author of Invent to Learn - Making, Tinkering, and Engineering, called "the bible of the maker movement in schools" and has thirty-four years of experience helping teachers around the world create the learning conditions for learning by making.
