A MAKER MANIFESTO FOR SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES?

Had an awesome ideashop yesterday with Väsby Lärlab’s Per Falk, a real entrepreneur in learning and change management. A real blast to think together with intellectual tinkerers…

THE CHALLENGE
Moulding a maker manifesto for schools and libraries, expressing core values on community building, intercultural collaboration, non-hierarchical organization/workflow and open design.

SOME PRESUMTIONS

  • A makerspace is not primarily about the tools, instead it’s the community that is the core.
  • Teachers, librarians and other pedagogical professions and roles are learning community builders. They can’t deliver real value in a co-making digital era if they don’t accept the role of the learningfacilitator.
  • The collective skills and passions of the local community is what needs to be harvested, mediated and matched to other motivated co-makers.
  • Clusters of relevant and passionate maker working groups will be able to design solutions that match (g)local needs.
  • Key factor to success: facilitating mentorship based on microtasks and networking across silos and filter bubbles.
