The FabLearn Fellows are experienced educators in formal and informal learning spaces who contribute to research about making and makerspaces in education and the development of open-source educational resources.
Despite the popularity of maker education, most teachers work in isolation, cut off from other practitioners and researchers. The FabLearn Fellows program brings researchers and practitioners together to help bridge these gaps. By connecting educators and researchers, we hope the Fellows will learn from each others’ experiences, share these lessons with their local community, and create educational materials for global use.
The Fellows come from schools, community organizations, and museums in the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe, all devoted to the idea of creating deep learning experiences for children. They will be given opportunities to expand their leadership in maker education, and share their amazing ideas and projects with the world.
