ECOMP 6205 Leaning into the Future with the Pedagogy of Making

We will examine the affordances of “making” in education as an instructional vehicle for teaching digital literacy and computer science content, skills, and dispositions. Through the pedagogical lens of constructionism and student-centered learning, we will explore effective instructional strategies for sustaining inquiry, fostering problem-solving and perseverance, and inspiring creativity and innovation. We will also model how these best practices are uniquely suited to advance equity and access for all students, particularly the under-served and under-represented.
