Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom

I2L_3D_cropped_close“Using technology to make, repair, or customize the things we need brings engineering, design, and computer science to the masses. Fortunately for educators, this maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing.”
Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom
Sylvia Libow Martinez and Gary S. Stager
This book guides educators through the historical foundations, learning theory, and classroom practices that can be found in modern classrooms where “making” with the head, hands, and heart are equally valued. Invent To Learn helps teachers in any classroom or informal educational setting with practical advice and essential resources needed to make the case for making in the classroom.
In addition, Invent To Learn provides in-depth guidance for teaching and learning about three game-changing technologies: Fabrication, Physical Computing, and Programming.
More information can be found on the book’s website – InventToLearn.com including extensive resources, professional development, and blog posts.
