Our special interest group (SIG) further researched the Maker Education
Movement in order to produce an academic poster and present at the GREAT16 conference in Galway, Ireland. As part of this process, I created the Google Doc for our group to brainstorm. Then, we all talked about what our focus questions would be for this specific project and all searched for articles related to the Maker Movement. Through this research and discussion, we became the experts or more accomplished novices who then had more knowledge and understanding of the content than the audience to whom we were presenting.
