Maker Education on a Budget - The Learner's Way - 22 views

    There is growing interest from schools in the Maker Movement and Maker Education but with this have come some subtle misunderstandings about what it is all about.

      Sounds more like training than education, if that's all you value.

    • Nancy Schmidt
      Can equity actually be achieved when we have privatization of education? I don't believe so as those who can afford private education will also contribute more toward their child's experience which continues to increase the divide.
