Invent to Learn: New Book About Makers

There is a new book titled Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom that I came across recently. I have not read the book yet, but wanted to share it for the people interested in 3D learning, or how 3D printing or makerspace culture can be used to help teach students.

Like how the web changed learning with Google, Wikipedia and YouTube how-to videos, the new makerspace culture and tools will change how students learn a decade from now. The change will happen whether schools endorse it or not, but the teachers that embrace it will better prepare their students for the future than those that ignore it. For years, Wikipedia and other online resources was shunned by the school establishment in favor of paper books. A decade later, encyclopedias aren’t sold in large quantities door-to-door or on software DVD. Most information is available on the web.
