Constructing Modern Knowledge Press

Modern books for modern learning

Our flagship book, Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Education in the Classroom is known worldwide as the “bible” of the classroom maker movement.

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.

CMK Press books offer high-quality content and ideas for education in the modern world based on time-honored principles of hands-on, minds-on education. We publish books by educators seeking to share their classroom expertise, renowned education leaders and thinkers, and others.
