Maker Education and Contextual Learning Environment

    Combining the maker movement’s constructionist educational model with the paradigm of socially structured learning within communities of practice, provides us with an excellent starting point for educational innovation within an institute such as the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. In this project, educators develop and research their own educational practice through the methodologies of action research; they implement concrete changes in their professional activities within their own educational contexts, while also researching these activities and contexts.
