Title:Guiding Critical Technical Practices in Community-Based Maker Spaces for Youth Through Question Prompts
Author(s):Bowler, Leanne; Champagne, Ryan
Subject(s):digital youth
Abstract:In this study we investigate the use of question prompts as a scaffold for the development of metacognitive thinking in relation to critical technical practices in community-based maker spaces for youth. Using qualitative methods, the study generated a set of eight core questions that self-aware makers ask themselves: What will make me happy? Who is my audience? What resources do I have and need? What will inspire me to spend my time and effort? What do I know? Can I let myself make a mistake? How will my creation affect other people? What kind of a maker am I?
