Making Good: Diversity and Equality in the Maker Movement

Download to read offline

The first issue of MAKE magazine was published in 2005. The ascendancy of the “maker movement” over the last ten years has created exciting new opportunities for some, but it has arguably exacerbated educational inequalities—providing valuable resources to a privileged few while reinforcing gender and racial stereotypes. This talk takes a celebratory and critical look at the history of the maker movement.
