Technological progress and the resulting social and economic changes require education to be constantly renewed. The Maker’s Red Box learning materials support this through a new method of maker pedagogy.
Learning by creating offers the opportunity to understand the world around us and to develop skills and abilities that will help children to shape their own futures. Maker pedagogy uses approaches that provide children with a much deeper sense of identification and involvement than traditional, frontal teaching.
Maker’s Red Boxes consist of 16 two-hour long sessions, incorporate story-based teaching, are accessible for kids with all kinds of backgrounds, develop essential soft and technical skills, let students work on real-world problems, provide motivation for career orientation and are mapped to the Next Generation Science Standards and the UK National Curriculum.
There are several curricula available, such like “Superheroes – Digital Srorytelleng”, “Green Engineers”, “City of the Future”, “Global warning”, and more.
