  • The Makers Movement is a creative and technological revolution in education that encourages play with open-ended materials and inquiry. Typically associated with STEAM education, this movement overlaps with the natural learning inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing.
  • StoryMaking, a new term, celebrates the multimodal literacies and learning that are demonstrated by young children as they find, build, and share their stories. It uses story-retelling, creating stories, STEAM, and loose parts to encourage inquiry-based play to develop literacy
