I am intrigued by the maker movement. Perhaps this stems from my background in the manufacturing sector. I long for a world where kids picked the teams, made the rules and kept the score. The more I learn about the maker movement, the more it smells like student empowerment to me. It would absolutely scream of redefinition on the SAMR model, except it goes beyond "computer technology" impacting the learning environment. Knitting, Cardboard and Paper creations hardly fit that bill. It doesn't have to be a 3D printer, but if that works to spur on the creativity, so be it.
