The presented project focuses on the integration of Maker education in the Italian primary and secondary school curriculum through a longitudinal, interdisciplinary and collaborative approach.
Maker education, based on the Think, Make, Improve cycle, is considered a technology-based extension of activism. This approach has an impact on the aims of schools and the needs of today’s socio-cultural contexts.
The research therefore aims to define teaching patterns co-designed and implemented with teachers and to detect their impact on students’ self-efficacy, attitude towards STEM and 21st century skills through a qualitative and quantitative analysis.
