Awakening The Maker Ethic in K-12 Students

A session at OSCON 2011

Thursday 28th July, 2011

2:30pm to 3:10pm (PST)

The current buzz in K-12 education is about 21st Century skills and self-directed learning. But this vision is at odds with the passive consumer attitude of many of our current students. Open Source can be the transformative key by enabling engaged cooperation on a global scale on projects of substance. Come learn about Makerbot 3D printers, humanitarian FOSS projects and the new Open IT Lab.
