What is maker-centered learning and how might this unique approach to learning and teaching support young people in developing a sense of agency and a sensitivity to design? Maker-Centered Learning offers educators and administrators a research-based framework and hands-on guide for empowering young people to shape their worlds. Participants will be introduced to the three key maker capacities: looking closely, exploring complexity, and finding opportunity. Join us for a presentation by Edward P. Clapp, principal investigator at Harvard Graduate School of Education's Project Zero for an opening keynote exploring creativity and innovation, design, and maker-centered learning.
