Maker Education in the News: How ‘Makers’ Make the Classroom More Inclusive

Hello All, 

I recently read this NY Times article about the maker movement in education. 
I was struck by its focus on how "making" is a vague term. 
I wonder, how do you personally define "making in education"?

In this article, a veteran teacher talks about the adjustment of going from "the sage on the stage" to an educator who embraces making. What advice would you give other teachers who are new to making in the classroom setting?

What successes have you had in incorporating making in your classroom or campus? 

I know many librarian out there have also embraced the maker movement, I would love to hear from them as well!
