Description

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.

Peter Dalmaris is an online educator, engineer, electronics hobbyist, and father. Peter has a diverse background as an educator and learner. An academic for over 15 years and with involvement in education spanning over 30 years, Peter has  witnessed a deterioration in the quality of the educational system. Peter’s work as an educator includes teaching thousands of students in Universities in Australia, and tens of thousands of self-learners, from all over the world. In every case, Peter has experienced the effect that “learning by doing” has in the educational outcomes of every individual.

Are you a teacher? A parent? A learner? Then this book is for you. This book will help you to understand and apply the power of Maker Education.
