Episode 17: Maker Education Might Make Us Cry (Both Ways)

Fri Jan 12 2018 (01:15:17)

If you don't believe that social consciousness starts early in human development, you'll assume Armando and Lynda--middle schoolers in Manhattan--are paid actors. But they're not, and in this episode they describe some of the projects that their teacher, Dr. Lou Lahana, supports with help from a holistic Community Schools approach at the Lower East Side's Island School in Manhattan. Guest Steve Heath joins the group from Rhode Island's Fab Newport, and together the group explores the highs and lows of Maker Education. This is a great episode for those working to glean the essence and values of Maker Ed, or to join veteran educators as they riff on the thornier details.
