In this hangout, participants discussed how design, making, and learning are connected. Design and “shop” used to be separated from other aspects of pedagogy, but participants in this hangout interrogated how these approaches are now becoming intertwined. This hangout was hosted by Howard Rheingold and was the second in a 4-part series called “Maker-Ed: Tinkering, Inventing, Learning,” which was co-streamed at connectedlearning.tv.
