Design Challenge:

The Digital Media and Learning (DML) Research Hub challenge was to initiate a public dialogue in order for DIY and Maker culture to make a real difference for education.

Claudia’s Involvement:

My contributions related to managing the execution of events under this thematic, including thought partnership with principals, financial oversight, as well as event coordination.

I was involved in organizing a one-day symposium aimed at enlisting support and raising awareness about the educational value of making. I also worked to surface a community of young Maker-learners (and their parents and mentors) through a challenge hosted on, inviting submissions that spoke to the relation between making and learning.
