"A process that leads to change"
As a class, we explored the various types of learning styles within small groups and then shared our specific style of learning in a poster to hang in the school halls. My group had Interpersonal learning, and we used a wide range of displayed information to catch our readers attention.
The Maker Movement is “design thinking” or a unique combination of artistry, circuitry, and craftsmanship in the classroom where the focus is “learning by doing.” A maker space is an actual space where people learn together through direct experience with an assortment of high and low-tech materials.

Three Intelligence types
Analytical intelligence is the intelligence most often recognized and rewarded in schools. Students with strengths in this area learn well with traditional school tasks such as organizing information, perceiving cause and effect, logical analysis, note taking, and predicting implications.
Practical intelligence is about relevance. Students with strengths in this area need to solve problems in a meaningful context. Their learning is supported when teachers offer connections with the real world outside the classroom. These students need to see concepts and skills at work.
Creative intelligence involves approaching ideas and problems in fresh and sometimes surprising ways. Students with strong creative intelligence are often divergent thinkers, preferring to experiment with ideas rather than "work" like everyone else.
