While some manufacturing experts see the maker movement as a step back in education and production, the movement presents a learn-by-doing approach to emerging professionals. Making is a method that takes some resources and modifies these resources in a way that makes the sum more valuable than the parts. European Perspectives on Learning Communities and Opportunities in the Maker Movement is a collection of innovative research on the methods and applications of value creation and problem solving within European learning communities. While highlighting topics including alternative learning methods, biomimetics, connected learning theory, and gentrification, this book is ideally designed for entrepreneurs, business professionals, manufacturers, carpenters, production experts, educators, academicians, industry professionals, researchers, and students seeking current research on the maker movement with examination through case studies.
