  6. 6. Theoretical Background
  7. 7. Maker Education and Experiential Education
  8. 8. Is It Project-Based Learning, Maker Education or Just Projects?
  9. 9. ● Is there an authentic and relevant context directly related to the students’ lives? Does the educator incorporate student voice and interests in its conception and development? In its implementation, do the students have permission and freedom to go in a direction that interests them? In its implementation, does the teacher fade into the background with students coming into the foreground of thinking, doing, and discussing? Are there the venues, space, time, strategies for reflection so students can construct their own meanings and understandings?
  10. 10. Tinkering and Technological Imagination in Educational Technology
  11. 11. Making and Innovation: Balancing Skills-Development, Scaffolding, and Free Play
  12. 12. ● Making, creating, innovating, experimenting are needed now more than ever in this rapidly evolving world and our children are severely lacking in these skills ● If these skills are to be integrated into formal and informal learning settings, some direct instruction and scaffolding will need to occur.
