About This Special Issue
In recent years, the "maker education" approach has gained prominence as an innovative and stimulating method to promote teaching and learning. This special issue of our international journal aims to explore the various dimensions and implications of this ever-evolving approach. Building on a solid research background, the aim of this edition is to deepen our understanding of how maker education is shaping educational landscapes around the world.
This special issue seeks to analyze the meaning of maker education in the contemporary educational context, examining how it influences the way students engage with knowledge, develop practical skills and cultivate creativity. Furthermore, we intend to investigate the pedagogical implications, the necessary infrastructure and the challenges faced in the effective incorporation of maker education in different learning environments.
We are interested in receiving contributions that address a variety of topics, including, but not limited to:
  • Innovative teaching strategies based on the maker approach.
  • Impact of maker education on student motivation and participation.
  • Evaluation and measurement of results in maker education.
  • Integration of technology and maker tools into the curriculum.
  • Case studies on successful implementations of maker programs.
  • Training and professional development of educators for maker education.
  • We accept empirical research articles, literature reviews, case studies and theoretical essays that contribute to the global understanding of maker education and its implications. We encourage researchers, educators and practitioners to share their perspectives and insights on this crucial topic.
