Infographics. LOVE. THEM.
It seems that infographics are used everywhere now. What better way to convey an immense amount of meaning in a very short amount of time while transcending language barriers? And what better way to sum up what we have learned in CEP 811?
My infographic is streamlined to convey the differences between Maker Education and Traditional Education by focusing on the benefits of Maker Education as rooted in learning theory (Bransford, Brown &Cocking, 2000) and TPACK (Mishra & Koheler, 2008). Maker Education prepares students for life in an increasingly collaborative, innovative and global society in which they will need to construct and apply meaning each and every day.
