Equity in STEM-Rich Making: Pedagogies and Designs
Ryoo, Jean J.; Calabrese Barton, Angela
Equity & Excellence in Education, v51 n1 p3-6 2018
This brief essay offers an introduction to a special symposium on equity in STEM-rich making. The introduction provides context that frames current equity issues in the Maker Movement, as well as short descriptions of the four articles included in the symposium. Collectively the papers in this symposium examine how complex power dynamics shape youths' making experiences, and how carefully designed equity-oriented pedagogical and design approaches can support youth in challenging sociohistorical narratives and complex power dynamics around making. The four articles pay attention to how making, innovation, and community spaces are always under negotiation, resulting in potential in-between spaces where individuals reproduce and resist the narratives at play there.
