A BOOK ABOUT EDUCATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY
The story of this book
I wrote this book because I had to. I needed to organize my thoughts around what a modern educational system should look like. I wrote it so that I could systematize the elements that can help my children, with their special learning requirements, not just cope but to thrive in a world full of opportunities of any kind, but especially learning opportunities. I wrote it for my young self, struggling to keep my love of learning and my curiosity alive.
I wrote it for teachers who are dedicated to creating remarkable learning experiences for their students. For parents who care not just about their children’s academic achievements, but also for their overall development as happy and creative individuals with their own unique set of passions and curiosities. I wrote it for the learners themselves, who are perhaps discouraged by their experiences in school and wonder if there is another way.
The "why" of this book
Conventional education is struggling to provide the learning environment necessary to help raise the future innovators, problem solvers, and entrepreneurs that advanced societies need. While efforts to transform education in that direction are underway, they are too slow and not decisive enough, resulting in too many of our children being left behind.
In this book, Peter Dalmaris argues that it does not have to be like that. Using Maker Education as a model for education in the 21st century, Dr Peter Dalmaris explains how teachers, parents, and learners can apply the educational methods of inventors and innovators for the benefit of their students and children. With strong philosophical and scientific underpinnings, Maker Education provides a unique opportunity to complement, and even supplement, our failing conventional education. This book shows you how.
