Expert talk Richard Heininger and Claudia Kaar: Making meets Education

Many students are not happy when sitting in a classroom just listening to teachers. Students are eager to experience what they learn. They want to touch, feel, and experiment. When we as educators want to motivate students for insightful capacity building, we should think about having fun generating knowledge. In our classes, students are allowed to take full advantage of this Makerspace. Specified milestones structuring their work guide the students throughout the term. When working on their project, they have the freedom to design, produce, and experiment according to their interest and own ideas. It helps them reflecting on their learning process, and makes them proud of their achievements.
