The Importance of Making
Making is an activity that involves creating something that you want to use or share. In addition to being a way to express yourself, it is a way to learn and grow. Traditional education systems are built around preconceived notions of knowledge and ability, whereas making is a hands-on, playful process. This process teaches students to experiment and ask questions. Ultimately, it leads to rich learning experiences that can’t be measured by standardized tests.
