• Transform learning with a hands-on thinking, making,

    and doing pedagogy empowered by STEAM materials.

  • Building a successful Maker program in a school or institution can be a difficult process. Our team of Maker Educators have experience establishing programs from the ground up in an International School and supporting hundreds of educators around the world to plan, integrate, build and sustain Maker Learning programs that are unique to their context and needs.

     

    The Maker Academy offers professional learning programs and micro-credentials for classroom teachers, learning specialists, and leaders that want to learn how to establish Making as a powerful philosophy, pedagogy, and practice in their classrooms, schools or institutions.

     

    Our Programs focus on:

    Pedagogy

    Our programs are learner-centered— learning activities, materials, and content are personalized and differentiated based on the participants in the room. They are the most important people in the room.

    Curriculum Integration

    Our programs empower educators to find the creative confidence in themselves and provide successful strategies to integrate Making into ANY Subject.

    Building Culture

    We work with leadership to strategically plan and support the evolution of their Maker Programs based on the school or institution's own needs, goals, and context.

    Testimonials and feedback from participants of our programs

    “I valued the exposure to new concepts through active learning exercises that challenged me but also helped reinforce my understanding and appreciation of the need to strategically embed maker learning into our students’ educational experience at all levels. The multiple examples of the various forms of integration after each concept were especially enriching.

     

    Linus’ instructional approach is exceptional; he is a natural coach and treasure-chest of knowledge and skill. We greatly appreciate his ideas, support and leadership! What an inspiration to us all!

     

    I plan to advocate for instructional time, space, materials and specialized faculty to promote maker learning at all levels of the school – to all stakeholders: the Board of Trustees, administrators, educators, faculty, parents and students. Promote related training opportunities not only for CAG educators but also for others in Guatemala. Tell the story of CAG’s journey through initial steps of maker learning to promote awareness and appreciation.”

    “This was a great experience. It was tough to commit to 4 full days in the start up week of school but I tried to balance this out. The scaffolding and input sessions that were carefully balanced with long chucks of open ended time to put the ideas into action, the range and variety of skills and materials that were the focus. I hope to make this a broader conversation with the teachers in my division. There are lots of opportunities for us to build Making into our work in the ECC that would be meaningful and purposeful and this workshop has inspired me to start this conversation with the team.

     

    Thanks Linus, you were fab – inspiring, supportive and good humoured!”

    Sasha Marshall
    Head of Early Childhood
    International School of Brussels

    “The combination of active learning, reflection, and sharing made this training extremely valuable for me. I also really appreciate the integration ideas! I believe I will also greatly value the extended follow up in the next few months; that is unique from other multi-day certificate trainings I have been involved in.”

    “I valued the points of view that the instructor shared with us and the exposure to new ideas. I plan to take all of the learning that I have done back to my classroom and have my students do more prototyping. I was impressed with the focus on language that Linus pointed out to us. I believe that it helps create a mindset and a way of thinking that Linus communicates effectively. He pointed out the need for empathy. I will take that back to my class. I also plan to incorporate technology as a material into some of the designs that I have my students do.”

    “The very fact that one doesn’t need a science background to be a Maker is awesome. Also the pedagogy followed in the workshop was very engaging.”

    “This was a very exciting, interactive class! I valued the pacing, the content, the time for classroom ideation and the collaboration! I will begin using ideas from this workshop next week in my class. I plan to start small, but eventually all of my content areas would be integrated, making it possible to seamlessly utilize my classroom and lessons with making.”

    More Testimonials can be found on the Consilience Website

    “I valued the opportunity to explore resources and activities, to have time to think about how to use these tools, and to share ideas across the school. It is useful to see how the thinking process can be utilised at all levels and subject areas. Each of the activities have interesting ways to think and interact with materials and thinking. “

          

    “I really enjoyed the week and having time and space to try out so many different tech and maker skills with a teacher there to guide and support us on our making journey. It was so much fun and informative! I plan to implement many of the new skills I have learned during choice time and more integrated into our current units.”

    “This is the best PD I’ve ever taken, it was the right amount of activities and application of what we were learning. I valued the sharing of ideas and being introduced to new technologies and ways of making. I plan to integrate elements of Making into every subject I teach and each unit.”

    "Very practical, well organized and fun workshop. This is the future of education and Im grateful to be part of this. Every person can be creative. There is no such thing as failing as the process is the most important aspect. Learning can be made the most fun, practical, shareable and memorable experience through making. Most important skills developed within a student are : critical thinking, teamwork, efficient resource usage, planning and being organized. Every form of making can be applied in all contexts.”
