Mitch Resnick defines tinkering as "bottom-up, iterative, experimental, concrete, and object-oriented."
Adults defining tinkering, how do students define it?
Do we pay too much attention to outcomes with our students?
Does it have to always be about the finished product?
If a project is never completed is it a bad project?
Creating a space with freedom and away from the constrictions of the curriculum and the classroom.
These are also the thoughts that I have had when I decided that I needed to create a MakerSpace for my students this fall.
