Macquarie University partnered with the NSW Department of Education, three Sydney schools and Makers Empire for a 12-month research study examining how maker activities using 3D technology could enhance learning and teaching outcomes. The study showed:
Makerspaces can be highly effective at developing children’s creativity, critical thinking, design thinking and digital skills.
Students were highly engaged with 3D technology and solving design challenges – it helped boost their confidence and resilience when dealing with setbacks, particularly for less capable students.
Teachers became more comfortable with technology and more collaborative and flexible in their teaching.
We know that the most incredible teaching tools are useless if they are not aligned to the curriculum and teaching goals, and if teachers are not provided with the support, training and resources they need to onboard efficiently and effectively. We want your teachers to feel confident and supported as they engage with 3D technology. That’s why Makers Empire’s products for schools include:
85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet. So how can we best prepare our students? How can we help students become creators, innovators and problem solvers so they can adapt and pivot when necessary? Design Thinking is a way of thinking and working that helps us to define and solve problems. It is a non-linear, iterative and human-centred process that helps us to reframe problems as opportunities. Teaching students Design Thinking helps them develop a growth mindset and important problem solving, analytical and spatial thinking skills.
