The maker movement culture emphasizes informal, peer-led, and shared learning, while driving innovation. Even though some experts view the maker movement as a move backward to pre-industrial revolution manufacturing, the purpose of making is not to have an abundance of tools in one space; rather, it is about helping participants create personally meaningful projects with the help of mentors, experts, and peers in ad-hoc learning communities. American Perspectives on Learning Communities and Opportunities in the Maker Movement is an essential reference source that discusses the maker movement in the United States, artisanal perspectives, and the learning-through-doing perspective. Featuring research on topics such as educational spaces, management, creativity labs, makerspaces, and operating procedures, this book is ideally designed for entrepreneurs, artisans, academicians, researchers, manufacturing professionals, and students.

This 6-page (tri-fold) laminated guide is a concise yet comprehensive quick-reference tool that draws on lessons from the Maker Movement to help educators create classrooms and schools that offer engaging hands-on, minds-on learning experiences for students in grades K-12. Making is more than something students do; it’s a stance towards learning that puts the learner in charge, giving students time to brainstorm, invent, design, and build. This is an iterative cycle that includes time to fix mistakes, improve, test, and improve again. Developing a “maker mindset” means students build resilience and determination by working through challenges without being told what to do every step of the way. This guide helps educators get started with making, offering a framework for planning the logistics, student experience, and space design, with an eye toward building inclusive makerspaces. It provides practical guidance on planning a makerspace and makerspace program, with detailed recommendations for • Projects and logistics; • Tools and materials; • Space design. Other features of the guide include: • General considerations for materials to collect and technology to buy for makerspaces. • Specific recommendations for free, low-cost, and “worth spending money on” tools and technology for grades pre-K-4, upper elementary and middle school, and high schools. • Three game-changing technologies. Making offers a path to implementation of STEM and STEAM that does more than prepare students for the next academic challenge or a future career, it enables them to be inventors, engineers, scientists, and mathematicians today. The DIY culture of making helps students develop crucial 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, creativity and problem solving, all while having fun and finding their personal passions and means of self expression. This guide will help you get started with making today!

Makeology introduces the emerging landscape of the Maker Movement and its connection to interest-driven learning. While the movement is fueled in part by new tools, technologies, and online communities available to today’s makers, its simultaneous emphasis on engaging the world through design and sharing with others harkens back to early educational predecessors including Froebel, Dewey, Montessori, and Papert. Makerspaces as Learning Environments (Volume 1) focuses on making in a variety of educational ecosystems, spanning nursery schools, K-12 environments, higher education, museums, and after-school spaces. Each chapter closes with a set of practical takeaways for educators, researchers, and parents.

Tiré du site Internet de l'auteur: "Corporate Mentality documents the emergence of recent practices within a cultural sphere occupied by both business and art. Based on an archive (1995-2001) maintained by Aleksandra Mir, it presents a diverse spectrum of artists who take on business as site, as material, and as subject of their work. Calling for a reassessment of the function of art in late-capitalist society, Corporate Mentality focuses on the complex and ambiguous ways artistic production inhabits corporate processes, abandoning the autonomy of the artwork, in order to elaborate resistant approaches to a world increasingly determined by commercial strategies and market concerns."
