How Making and #MakerEd Can Enrich the Classroom Experience

Well, I created my first infographic this week! Our task was to create an infographic about some aspect of the Maker Movement in education. I chose to focus mine on personalized learning environments and how they can be enriched by incorporating Making and encouraging students to be makers. It was a lot of fun to make, and I can definitely see myself using infographics in my teaching in the future. They also would be a great project for students!

I don’t think there is much else to say – the infographic explains my ideas!

Here it is:
