some reflection on the discussion with Roberta about Learning through Making (

Key in makerspaces is the creation of artifacts through a creative process in a social arena (so here we're talking about working with others, collaborating with others) 1/9

Let's talk about #PaperCircuits and how my students actually go about making them. In total, we spent twelve days of class time on this project, (two intro days of lessons and ten days of project time), but there are easy ways to scale it back and make less of a project of it.
My goals for this #projectbasedlearning are as follows:

* Learn how electricity moves through a circuit
* Learn how loose connections & short circuits can cause circuitry to fail
* Learn to solder
* Practice Prototyping
* Practice troubleshooting problems
* Meld art & science
One of the downsides to #projectbasedlearning is that it's a lot of time for a relatively small amount of content covered. That's only true if you discount the other skills students learn along the way: designing, prototyping, and troubleshooting are all valuable skills!
