Today's learners deserve and need...Authentic opportunities to do meaningful work. Today’s tools to get real work done. Opportunities every day, throughout the day to work on personally engaging tasks. Space and resources to work collaboratively, think critically & create. Learning that is enjoyable and yes, fun! The Maker Movement provides all of this and more.
