Maker Ed, or Maker Education, is built on the Maker movement from the 1960’s and is a trans-formative approach to learning. I had not heard of this approach but when I ran into it on my search around the web for alternative teaching methods I got fascinated. This method works very well for both shorter and longer project, and in my eyes it would be a perfect way of including parents into a project, use their knowledge as experts the students can turn to. It is also interesting how failing is looked upon as a way to further learning and not as a failure.
Tonight and tomorrow night will be filled with filming. I have five videos ready to be filmed, the largest amount of bulk filming I have done so far. I am hoping to get at least four of them filmed today, maybe five, so I have some extra time for editing. The tutorials are really fun to do but they are more time consuming than the talking head videos I usually do, especially when it comes to editing. But at the same time I am learning so much from doing them that I will most definitely continue.
Now, let’s get into today’s video, Maker Ed and the importance of failing, and if you like it please give it a thumbs up and share.
