Youth STEAM Learning by Making in Libraries and Museums


2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

The maker movement is the growing number of people and communities who are engaged in creating, designing, tinkering, and sharing projects. Maker learning is student-driven and production-centered learning that stems from the pedagogical traditions of constructivism, constructionism, experiential learning, or community of practice. From this perspective, learning is a process of creating artifacts that are personally meaningful and potentially contribute to a community. As part of a larger IMLS-funded research project, Youth STEAM Learning by Making in Libraries and Museums, this video reports findings on the processes of maker learning in a high school maker class. The researchers and practitioners at the University of Oklahoma and Norman Public Schools collaborated to design a semester-long maker class in Fall 2016. We investigated students’ processes of making, including actions, emotions, challenges, and helps students experienced over the course of their making journey. The study finds information plays a critical role when people engage in creative production and learning. This video informs both researchers and educators on STEAM learning and teaching.
