"MAKERS" ARE SKILLED IN:
How Does This Fit Into
EDUCATION?
“Curiosity is the engine of achievement.”

“I believe this passionately: that we don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out if it.”

“Many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they’re not — because the thing they were good at at school wasn’t valued, or was actually stigmatized.”

“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.”

“We are educating people out of their creative capacities.”

“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”

SCHOOLS AND EDUCATORS ARE TAKING NOTE...
The idea of incorporating "MAKING" into education is pulling together a variety of innovative thinkers from different disciplines...

Was Steve Jobs an early "Maker"?
CONCLUSION:
Everyone has creative capabilities.

Excitement for figuring things out is a characteristic that should be nurtured.

Actively participating in the Maker Culture builds skills that foster long term success.
EDUCATIONAL
APPLICATIONS:
"The FabLab is the natural next step for us. Our students are already tinkering and designing through project-based learning, but now they will be using the latest technologies to test their solutions. Instead of using cardboard and paper to create models, they can test their prototypes in 3-D simulations using the same innovative tools that are being used in the business world."
