50 dangerous things you shouldn’t do with your children

on

This week I’ve stumbled upon very interesting book – 50 dangerous things you shouldn’t do with your children. Browsing through them I actually recalled doing a lot of them (like f.ex. licking 9V battery) in my childhood! This book is a playful invitation for parents and educators into the world of tinkering and promotion of maker movement in education. The author, Gever Tulley, have established Tinkering School (amazing summer camps: http://storage.ted.com/tinker/Comic.pdf) and renowned Brightworks school in San Francisco and is a huge advocate for experiential learning. Project-based learning is not a new idea, but in his approach, one can clearily see how learning with the whole body (not only cognitive, but also motor and sensory functions) can be both joyful and productive at the same time!
