What does it mean to be a "maker?"

If instructors only begin lessons with pencil/paper drills, math problems, and reading prompts they will only receive pencil/paper responses, prompted answers, and one size fits all methods!

Creativity... What is that?

"Creativity is characterized by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions." - Linda Naiman (Creativity at Work)
