Here’s a quick little article that talks about how the DIY movement, especially events like Maker Faire, offers a chance to allow kids to learn by doing. Many education professionals think this is the best way for many kids to learn, but opportunities for this kind have been phased out of many school systems. It reminds me of the talk I saw at H.O.P.E. this summer about hacking education, and makes me happy to think we’ll definitely be hearing more about the movement as it picks up steam.
