Stanford Graduate School of Education and the Transformative Learning Technologies Lab, with support from the Cyberlearning Program at the National Science Foundation (NSF), are pleased to open applications for the first cohort of Stanford FabLearn Fellows. Each fellow — an educator in formal or informal education — will be a pioneer in generating an open source curriculum for Makerspaces and FabLabs all over the world, and in collecting data to inform research about the “makers” culture and digital fabrication in education.
This year-long commitment (January – December 2014) will provide a group of 10 teachers and educators with the resources to transform their own successful education activities and experiences in Makerspaces and Fablabs into shareable, open source educational materials, and also analyze and collect data on the effects and outcomes of hands-on learning in STEM education. This program targets teachers or educators that are actively using, building, or planning Fablabs and Makerspaces in schools, museums, and other learning spaces. This program is a part of a NSF-sponsored project entitled “Infusing Learning Sciences Research into Digital Fabrication in Education and the Makers’ Movement.” As such, the fellows’ participation will contribute to high-impact research and outreach in the United States and beyond.
