We are Makers – a movement

Who are these Makers?

Watch this nicely created film about making and the movement it has become.

This Maker Movement has certainly struck a chord for me! You know, it really does connect students to their learning, especially if they are involved in the process from conception to the final product.

We Are Makers | A short film on the Maker Movement

It is good to take a unique approach, which usually means trying different things till success is achieved, after repeated fails.

Innovative ideas do not come with an instruction manual.

From the heart to the hands!

keep it simple ok?

Function first

About this place, I decided to forget about a color scheme and branding for a bit. I am talking about this website. Instead, focus on what is functional like the basic layout and content. So far, this has made it easier to make progress. Form usually does follow function. Now I feel more satisfied with what I am looking at.

Keep it simple sweetheart!

Also, I must remember the principles of design, which is of course C.R.A.P! It simply stands for contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity. I could expand on those but I have to work on this website! I can recommend a book which we read in “Web Design and Media Production” class. It outlines this now very popular idea of design “Non-Designers Design Book” by Robin Williams.

Robin is known to have first coined the acronym C.R.A.P.
