At Makers Empire, we help equip educators with the tools, skills and resources they need to embrace the value of creativity and making in education for improved student performance, engagement and learning.
While we’ve seen firsthand the benefits of this kind of learning for students and have published dozens of school case studies based on teacher interviews, it’s good to know that our anecdotal findings are backed up by evidence-based studies, too: our Learning By Design course was the subject of a year-long research study by Macquarie University in Sydney on makerspaces in a primary school setting.
The research study report was released in October 2018 and offers compelling evidence of the benefits of this type of learning for primary students and teachers. Learn more and download report.
