HOWTO teach kids to be makers

Gever Tulley outlines his simple yet radical pedagogical method in this short video. Gever’s book 50 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Children Do is worth a high school education (or more) by itself. Tulley’s method: learn to use power tools. Do a quick sketch of something challenging and great. Start building. Learn to use more tools. Encounter hard problems. Work them out. Make stuff. Feel great. Do more. I want to go back in time and attend Tinkerer’s School.
