Makeology presents the Maker Movement’s evolving terrain and its relationship to interest-driven learning. The emphasis on engaging the world through the creation and sharing with others hearkens back to early educational antecedents such as Froebel, Dewey, Montessori, and Papert. The movement is propelled in part by new tools, technology, and online networks available to today’s makers. Making is the center of Makerspaces as Learning Environments (Volume 1), which spans early childhood settings, K–12 settings, higher education, museums, and after-school settings. Each chapter concludes with a list of applicable lessons for teachers, researchers, and parents.
