Six Amazing Things about Making

Presenter

When we make, play and share, we bring meaning to everyday life, and build cultures together. In this session, Mitch Resnick and David Gauntlett each discuss three objects which show the power of making. They show that making is learning, fosters happiness, and is true social participation. How can we build better opportunities and tools for making? Mitch Resnick is professor and head of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. He was awarded the McGraw Prize in Education 2011. David Gauntlett is professor and co-director of media research at University of Westminster, London. His books include 'Making is Connecting'.
