I created this Voicethread for a cognition and technology class I’m taking as part of the Discovery Ed Instructional Media Program at Wilkes University. I argue that tinkering, in and of itself, is a good thing , because play is an essential element for learning and innovation. In addition, play is fostered in environments where people feel secure and inspired to play. You got it…makerspaces provide that necessary environment!
