Interesting take on “making” in education, Sylvia. It’s interesting that you’ve pointed out that young people are often more concerned with making the world a better place rather than with making money — if that shared tendency continues with students, we may see a generation of highly active, engaged, and innovative thinkers entering the workforce.

It’s also interesting how you mentioned that computer use for the sake of taking notes or basic research carries little real benefit, and that educators must strive to use technology in a way that is deliberate and transformative. We agree!

Thanks for sharing this piece — hopefully “making” in education is a trend that sticks.
