The European “MakeInTeach – MAKErspaces for Innovation in teaching practices” focuses on the process of research to develop more attractive teaching methods and learning environments related to real life.
The educational power of Makerspaces and FabLabs (and the rapid prototyping technology used in these spaces) can support teachers in this change. In detail, the “MakIN Teach” project integrates the Do It Yourself (DIY) philosophy, typical of these spaces, with activism theory and ideas related to “learning to learn” and “active learning”.
The project partners are AFP Patronato San Vincenzo of Bergamo (IT), I.E.S. Juan Ciudad Duarte of Seville (ES), Tallinn Polytechnic School (EE), MakerConvent – Transit Projects (ES) and the Center for Creative Training Association of Bulgaria (BG).
Different learning activities with teachers will be developed throughout the project. The first one, developed in Bergamo in December 2019, just before the Coronavirus crisis, is explained by the Spanish participants here.
