In May 2013 I co-authored what I hopefully consider my first book with Gary Stager called Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom.
In writing this book, I try not only to capture the excitement, cool tools, and ethos of the Maker Movement, but also the opportunities to reinvent education. By combining the noble history and origins of making in the classroom, with the sharing, remix, and invention culture of today, I hope to inspire educators about possibilities that exist in every classroom, every grade, and every subject area.
The positive response to the book so far has been humbling and heartwarming. It’s a reminder that we can change education for the better. We have been invited around the world to share this message of positive change for classrooms that honors learning, invention, and design.
Gary and I also created a publishing imprint, Constructing Modern Knowledge Press. We have published nine books (with more to to come) that will help people learn, teach, and grow the capacity for modern knowledge worldwide.
