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 more

Review quote

"The Maker Movement promises a revolution in education that the Makeology volumes beautifully describe. Adults and children work together to develop designs and products they can be proud of, involving science, technology, engineering, and the arts. This is the kind of collaborative education that helps people develop identities as lifelong learners and producers." --Allan Collins, Professor Emeritus of Learning Sciences, Northwestern University, USA "Makeology is the first broad and comprehensive examination of the Maker Movement as a catalytic force for young people's learning. Practitioners and scholars interested in implementing and studying making as a force for creative expression and student-centered learning will find in this two-volume collection a wealth of thoughtful and significant information." --Margaret Honey, President & CEO, New York Hall of Science, USA "Our goal should be helping children see themselves as good learners, as lifelong learners. The impact of what they create, design, shape, and build will be known in the future, but the time for making it happen is now. This book can increase the opportunities for making in educational settings by sharing the insights of many leading practitioners." --Dale Dougherty, Founder & Executive Chairman, Maker Media, Inc., USA, from the foreword "One thing we have in common is our commitment to putting more power in the hands of people from all backgrounds, enabling everyone to develop their voice and express themselves. There's a special opportunity right now. But that moment could also slip away, so it is all the more important to make connections and join forces with other communities with shared values, to make sure that all children have the opportunity to grow up as full and active participants in tomorrow's society." --Dr. Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research and head of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the Media Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, from Volume 2show more
