Maker Education: In a nutshellBy Dr. Peter Dalmaris

In a Nutshell

Maker Education is a system of teaching that can be traced to the writings of ancient philosophers. This system is validated by modern research as a viable successor to the industrial-era mass-education paradigm, which is better suited to complex, high-tech societies.

Anything that we have to learn to do, we learn by the actual doing of it ... We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate ones, brave by doing brave ones.

Aristotle, Greek philosopher


Aristotle spent a large portion of his life thinking about education and learning. Although not a maker himself in the modern sense of the word, Aristotle was perhaps one of the first to recognise the relationship between education with quality of life.

Aristotle is credited with saying that 'the fulfilled person was an educated person' and emphasised that learning must be balanced, with play, physical training, music, debate, science, and mathematics all playing a role in developing healthy minds and bodies.

In this Hack, we'll look at how Aristotle's ancient principles can be applied to learning today.
