Learning in the post-digital era. Integrating the Maker approach into the Italian school curriculum
Gratani, F., Giannandrea, L., Rossi, P.G.
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.
